Black Tailed Bull Ant / Myrmecia forficata Queen Only

Availability: In stock

ξSlightly smaller than the largest bull ants, Myrmecia forficata 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.

ξGestation 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.
