  1. Sounds good, grimace. Can't wait ^^

     

    Hunter... that vid is horrific, awe-inspiring, and quite... curious.

    I think I'll try doing that with my colony.

    Although they are like a half inch, so they might just hack up and carry off bones too.

  2. Set up ant farm first, then get epic pics of inner workings of the ant's world.

     

    What're you using for it? What will you feed them?

    I can try for inner workings. They are using an old 50 gallon for the nest, so I wont be able to see much if the tunnels and such unfortunatly.

    Hard to keep that massive amount of ants in a normal formicarium.

    I can definatly get pictures of them in the setup though. biggrin.gif

     

    i'm thinking of feeding them a staple of grass seed (which is supposed to be most of their natural diet), anything dead in the roach colony (which isnt often), and a ton of other odds and ends. smile.gif

  3. Oh, you're digging them up? Get pics if you can!

     

    Some of my fave. insects are syrphids. Anyone here know of syrphid flies? Flies that look like bees/wasps. I love freakin' people out by getting a fly to land on me, then running up to a person all "IT A GONNA STING JOO."

    I'll try for pictures. I have to hurry though, and scoop as much of the colony into a couple 5 gallon buckets before they have a chance to fully swarm.

    Supposedly one sting from them is about equal to 12 honeybee stings.

    and I assume nothing will make them angrier than digging up the entire nest.

     

    On the plus side I'll have a MASSIVE ant farm. lol

  4. Lets see, as of right now, in the ''creepy crawly'' department, I have, a 3 foot plated lizard, a sulcata, a tokay, around 200 giant cave roaches, and a few hundred hissing roaches.

    Tomorrow I am getting a colony of tens of thousands of maricopa harvester ants. ( the most venomous insect there is)
