A very robust Acromyrmex species wich don't need much space. This species is smaller than Acromyrmex octospinosus and colored chocolate brown. Larger colonies can be kept in multiple basins which are connected together with pipes. They cut various kind of leaves e.g. bramble-, raspberry-, oaks-,roseleaves, privet etc. They cultivate a fungus garden which they do dung, trim and "medicate" with a hormone they produce in special adenoids. They will pulpify the leaves and apply it on the fungus. Old pieces of fungus will be removed and thrown to special midden. They will almost only subsist on special "bulbs" that they can harvest from fungus. This offered Acromyrmex are young colonies, no queens from existing colonies.

 

Note: We guarantee that all queens in these young colonies are mated.

  • Distribution: South-America
  • Taxonomy: Subfamily Myrmicinae, Tribe Attini
  • Characteristics: very intensive caste
  • Size: Queen 10 - 12 mm, Workers may ranges from 5 to 15 mm
  • Appearance: Workers are at the back with thorns
  • Color: black-brown
  • Nest building: Usually soil nests with fungus chamber
  • Nutrition: fungi which the ants cultivate of bramble-, raspberry-, oaks- or roseleaves
  • Temperature: 20 - 25°C

Numero articolo: cecr0001
Parole chiave:
Nessuno +

Very individual shaped Myrmicinae which can close their nest entries with their head similar like Camponotus truncatus. This species is ideal for keeping in a community basin (basin with different ants species) because they don't attack other species. They even can't be attacked by other species because of their individual shape. In danger they duck down like a turtle on to the ground and even their antennas can be hidden in special notch on the head. In addition Cephalotes have a very good sight and reacts very fast on movements in their environment. Some Cephalotes species can control their flight direction during free fall with the purpose to land on their nest tree.

Important keeping notice: The nest branches have got to be able to dry off permanently. A good air circulation is essential. Mould growth in nesting area can kill the ants in the long-term.

  • Distribution: South America
  • Color: silvery-black

In the long run Megalomyrmex is spec. not recommended for a community tank. Through their strong chemical defenses expel them from the other ants feeding grounds.

These ants are able to catapult themselfs up to 40 cm far thru sudden lock up of their mandibles. This mandible lock up is the fastest known mechanism in the fauna. The upper jaw closes with a speed of 38 to 64 m/s. Thru locking up their jaws they are anesthetizing their prey to afterwards sting it to death. It is improper for a corporate tank/formicarium because they will attack any other species at first encounter.
