Camponotus sp. from Australia (Австралия)

Hello Friends!

I will show you my new queen from Australia. This queen is very big maybe 23-25mm big and very nice colored. The workers are very big too but i have no workers yet only the queen and 3 pupa and one larvae. I had seen a colony by a friend and they are very nice. This "Major" workers maybe 17-19 mm big, the first workers around 12 mm, "Media" maybe 14-15mm.

I hope my colony will grow up and i can show you more pictures!

Hi Муравейка

This is not consobrinus, this queen is mutch bigger! The color is different, not many, i think they are in the same group with C. consobrinus and C. nigriceps.

Look for good pictures of C. consobrinus at this link:

9 - Privet! I want to keep them


I want to keep them in a formicarium when i have more than 10 workers. It is not very good when you give them a big area and nest so early.
I hope i get more workers before the year ends. Maybe i have luck ... i can only wait.
