I brought Leaf cutter ants three days ago.
Species Acromyrmex Octopinosus and Colony scale is 10 big workers, 10~15 small workers, 1 queen and Fungus is the size of a golf ball.
I will show you the Pictures in order
When they arrived, the Fungus was all breaked, but they were all repaired in a day.
I feed rose leaves and petals. i seemed to prefer leaves to petals.
I am very interested to see the leaf cutter ant for the first time
Here are some questions.
1.I've been thinking a lot about the bottom flooring. i considered gypsum or sawdust. but i had a simple setting i'm keeping the humidity in a tissue now.
If the Colony grows bigger, i will separate the Feed tank and the Colony case, and then i will think about the bottom flooring materials again.
Please tell me the type of flooring materials and their advantages and disadvantages.
2.Recommend that the leaf ants serve many different foods? or is it better to give only favorite food?
3.How long does a Acromyrmex small workers live??
I am not good at english so there may be a wrong sentence. i hope you understand.
