Acanthomyrmex thailandensis Care Sheet

Acanthomyrmex thailandensis is a small species with a very distinctive appearance: the majors have a huge head (for shredding insects and especially for breaking seeds). They are completely peaceful and will avoid combat at all costs, making them a great species for cohabitation, especially since colonies remain small (up to 200 workers).

General Information:

– Level of Care: Easy
– Geographic Distribution: Thailand
– Origin: Northern Thailand
– Queen Size: 8mm
– Worker Size: 3 to 8mm
– Polygyny: Generally no, but polygynous colonies are occasionally observed
