I can't see any pupa, just lots and lots of larvae. I almost convinced myself a loose strand of cotton was the antenna of a nanitic hiding under the cotton Razz sad

Very easy to view, I marvel at how many eggs a Pheidole Queen makes compared to Camponatus.

Thanks Myrm. It's quite touching how attentive they are. I caught her sort of wrapped around them earlier.

Yeah Dermy, it's quite surprising. Especially considering these will be her first workers.

I realise I haven't took a picture of her formicarium yet , I will do in a bit.

Here you go guys, Byformica GroTube. They do sell a foraging area too but it doesn't appear to be for sale yet.

Yeah. I love how modern they Look Smile I purchased it off of Amazon UK Very Happy I got the blue one for obvious reasons lol.

Awesome Dermy, you should ask him to do a yellow one one Laughing Razz

I can't see any pupa yet just some large Larvae so hopefully not long now.
