Black Tailed Bull Ant / Myrmecia forficata Colony

Availability: Sold Out

ξ

Slightly smaller than the largest bull ants, Myrmecia forifcata features a striking shiny black gaster that can shimmer green in direct light.

Like all bull ants care must be taken when handling this species as their sting can be painful.

ξ

Gestation can be very long, sometimes as much as 6 month from egg to worker. The founding stage is also known to be difficult as queens lay on a cycle that can be up to a year apart.

Ant keepers tend to have more success when keeping this species in a natural sand/dirt nest, allowing the queen to dig her own founding chamber.

NO SALES TO THE USA

Unavailable for Western Australia or Tasmania.
