My Ant Journal #1

Few days ago, i lost my trapjaw queen. She escapes from the test tube.
Today, i was in class. I was reading some books. And then, some of my friends shout to me " Hey! Come here! A queen. "

They already know that i was trying to keep an ant colony.
I catch that queen (it also a trapjaw queent!)(Odontomachus sillimimus). Luckily, i brought my test tube and some cotton also.
And this will be a journal about the queen that might will be a mom (i hope she's mated').

I'll keep an update. Hopefully i can start my first colony this year.
