Rhytidoponera Metallica queen ants with brood.
Also known as Green Head Ants or Metallica, in reference to their shiny green metallic appearance. The queens are similar in size to the workers so it is hard to tell them apart.
These queens are semi clausal so they will need a foraging area to come out and feed.
Feed Sugars and protein when larvae arrive.
As these ants cannot climb easily we recommend test tubes and outworld setup or one of our horizontal style setups.
