PROCERATIUM CAUGHT

Recommended Posts

this is Forest here

 

I just caught a Proceratium cf. pergandei queen and IM SUPER PSYCHED no photos due to a crappy phone

she is like 3mm long and is dark red, very hard to spot. caught at 7:15pm in between a log and a brick presumably a dusk flyer still has wings, more than likely mated if she is successfull this will be great but if she dies I will preserve her using the hand sanatizer trick that i have yet do do with my Camponotus caryae queen

 

until next time

Super exciting!  Well done!

Hey Dork, I found out that they have a very specialized diet of spider eggs, dead ants and insect larvae she is eating a dead Tapinoma sessile worker as we speak she is amazingly small and is very slow to react to anything and is not bothered by light or anything, she is very calm I have been told to keep her in a petri dish setup but I am unfamiliar with that setup and I will put some soil in her tube as well
