I love Formica ants. They are fast moving , aggressive to prey, and fast growing. My friend had a colony of these ants and loved them so much. I hope I catch a queen of these genus this year.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

I love keeping Pheidole sp. As they are fast-growing, have majors, and are small so can easily fit into any formicarium. Plus they are found almost world-wide!
Currently caring for a Lasius Niger colony :D
