Hey,
Im pretty new to the ant keeping community and I was wondering if someone could please help me identify the type of species of ants that I have been seeing around. I live in Africa so that might help to identify it. Thanks!
:D

Hey,
Thanks for the reply... but the website won’t let me post an image, it says that the maximum quota has been reached. In Kenya to be specific.

:lol:
I am pretty sure that I have correctly identified them as African Big headed ants (Pheidole), as I have noticed major and minor workers amongst the colony.
