Rhytidoponera Metallica queen ants with brood, plus colonies.
One of our favourite species here at Ants Everything, our colony is now up to 150 workers and they are very active and entertaining.
These ladies are commonly known as either 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.
Our colony really enjoys pin head crickets, roaches (Woodies), and Byformica sunburst ant nectar in Galileo feeders. They also enjoy raw honey and fruits.
