Cataglyphis sp.

Aggiunto il: 02/11/2006
Numero articolo: cavi0001
Parole chiave:
Nessuno +

The kinds of the type Cataglyphis are exclusively ground inhabitants. In adaptation to their way of life as a ground hunter they have nearly lost the ability to climb up at plain surfaces like panes of glass. They do this only under the greatest efforts and undertake such excursion only at food storage, at concerns or lack of space. As an inhabitant of subtropic areas this ant needs a rest, like the hibernation of local kinds. A cool down of the terrarium on 15 to 18 degrees for 1 to 2 months in the winter is enough to interrupt the brood activity and to give the colony time to regenerate. Also offer enough fodder in the form of carbohydrates now.

  • Taxonomy: Subfamily Formicinae, Tribe Formicini
  • Distribution:  north africa
  • Characteristics: very polymorph
  • Appearence of the queen: head and thoraxand abdomen matt black, bottom side of the abdomen shiny black, very long legs
  • Appearance of the workers: Head and thorax and abdomen matt black, bottom side of the abdomen shiny black, very long legs
  • Size: Queen about 16 mm, Workers: 6 - 16 mm
  • Breed-time: fast (4 - 6 weeks)
  • Nest building: soil nests
  • Nutrition: living insects self-hunted, also fresh-dead insects and other invertebrates, honey- and sugar water, always fresh water in a drank. (The kind is not excessively demanding, but needs, sufficient care and constant supplies of animal protein during the summer period)
  • Temperature: warm (25 - 30 °C), in the deeper nest area there should be cooler areas.
  • Air humidity: in the deeper nest area there should be areas with higher air humidity. besides dry, occasional spraying of the runout area with water.
  • Number of basins: 1 basin is adequate, but with a base as lage as possible.
  • Dimensions of basin: at least 40 x 30 x 30 cm (depending of colony-size), with a possibility to clean up the nest
  • Soil conditions: sand, loam, stones. Design the fittings from steppes to dessert-like, some dry branches increase the runout surface.
  • Planting: Plantation with mediterranean plants is advantageous. Hydrocultures with havy little stones are advisable, because for the big and strong ants it is impossible then to put on twig nests in the damp root area.
  • Accessories: an infrared heating lamp for heating the nest. Terrarium lighting with clock timer. 
  • Keeping level: middle

Ocymyrmex cf. barbiger

Aggiunto il: 23/06/2014
Numero articolo: occf0001
Parole chiave:

This is a very interesting ant species from southern Africa, which especially stands out due to its exceptional speed when furaging in arid and hot areas. Commonly often called "Hotrod Ant", this ants' genera name also indicates how fast they forage on sandy grounds, primarily preying upon heat-stressed insects. Hence the meaning of Ocymyrmex is simply, fast ant. Another noticeable characteristic is the ability to consume even large prey items in no time.

  • Taxonomy: Subfamily: Myrmicinae, Tribe: Pheidolini
  • Origin: Botswana and South Africa
  • Color: Dark red with lighter colord head, gaster shiny black
  • Size: Queen: about 7 - 9 mm (ergatoid) / Workers: about 7 - 8 mm
  • Dormant phase: In nature from June to end of August; temperatures within this period up to +7 °C at night, up to 20 °C during the day
  • Nutrition: Honey/sugar water and dead insects
  • Temperature: From warm to very hot: about 24 - 34 °C
  • Soil conditions: sandy/rocky soil
  • Nest building: Porous concrete, plaster or soil nests
  • Planting: Typical plants of arid areas
  • Specifics: very fast moving, ergatoid queens

Additional Information: The colonies offered have been kept for about five months and large amounts of brood in all stages have always been present. All colonies developed nicely and showed to be rather easy to keep in captivity. Of course colonies of the offered size also produce males in varying numbers. Obviously each colony contains quite a number of ergatoid queens, but it is unfortunately not possible to determine, how many are actually taking part in the reproduction process.

Nota : Grandi Oecophylla longinoda colonie nelle selvagge molti nidi di filiale ( polydom ) ma solo una regina fecondata nel nido principale. Perché noi non vogliamo imbrogliare i nostri clienti , noi vendiamo solo aperti ( verificato) nidi con la regina accoppiata Garantito che , di solito parecchi mesi prima sono stati mantenuti da noi . Nidi non aperti comportano il rischio di parassiti e parassiti ( acari, scarafaggi , ecc.) Le cosiddette colonie "economici" senza regina sono soldi sprecati perché non hanno tempo per goderne.
