Myrmecia piliventris Queen Only
A medium sized ant but small by Myrmecia standards, this particular species is quite aggressive.
Found throughout Australia but more common in the eastern states.
Like all bull ants care must be taken when handling this species as their sting can be painful.
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.
