Colobopsis leonardi

(1 customer review)

Big sized tropical ant species which lives in wood. Similar to the local Colobopsis truncata (gatekeeper-ant), but much bigger and less shy. The queen is 10-11mm long. Polymorph species, it has minor and major workers. The species unique about the head of the queen and the major workers. They had flat head, it looks lika a cork. They can close the entrance of the nest with it and protect themselves this really clever way. This species don't need winter hibernate.

    Nem rég érkezett egy királynő pár petével és egy dolgozóval.Könnyen tartható, szép hangyafaj potrohukon világos sárgás csíkokkal.Mindenkinek tudom ajánlani, ahogy ezt az oldalt is.😊
