Hello from Sydney Australia

Hi I'm a 13year old boy living in Sydney and after discovering the interesting hobby through Mikey Bustos 6 months ago I caught my first queen in early December. Now I have 9 queens which I think are iridomyrmex, living in the AntsCanada Omni and hybrid nests.

I'm interested in selling some of my queens on the GAN project. I think I will be the first seller in Sydney, the biggest city in Australia.

I got a macro lens for Christmas and I started taking some videos with my iPad.
Here is the first video I have made of my ants close-up and I will be making some more soon. :D

Awesome job! Best wishes for your colony!
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Nice! How many of your colonies have multiple queens? Are they all monogynous?

Yes they are all monogynous I tried to keep a colony with two queens (iridomyrmex) but unfortunately one queen got attacked in the test tube and she lost a leg and died. :cry: So I know not to do that again. I did find some Pheidole Queens once but they are less easy to find and I didn't have a chance to put two together because they ended up not surviving for various reasons. And a few months ago I found a Camponotus consobrinus queen ant (she was a huge bull ant)and she laid a few eggs but I let her go because I didn't feel ready to accomodate them after being told they can bite real hard.
