Acromyrmex octospinosus


At last i have seen the Queen in the flesh for the first time, and i’m not talking about “Game of thrones” 🙂 She was bumbling about over the fungus looking at what the workers had been doing before paying them.

Here she is revealing her back end to me 😯


Well she went and turned around…

So the tin foil thats reflecting the heat back in against the front of the pod seems to have worked as most of the condensation has now gone, but i think i might put some jabbalite there instead. The soil has also got very wet as you can see, but i’m not going to mess with it. I put in about 1/2 inch of water in the pod at the start because i wanted to see how long the humidity would stay constant. Holiday worries…
