Details

Atta cephalotes 50-150 workers


Species

The leaf-cutter ant, Atta cephalotes 50-150, also called parasol ant from South America. This species is best known worldwide because of the fungus (fungus) that they grow and the large quantities of leaves that they need.

Because of this unique day, they are extremely suitable for (large) zoos, specific museums and pet shops.

These colonies are also easy to keep for hobbyists, since they grow to be several thousand specimens (in contrast to Atta colonies that can handle huge numbers (up to hundreds of thousands) of ants).


Nutrition

This species lives on a fungus. The ants use various leaves to make this fungus. The colonies can only be picked up in our showroom, we also provide advice on nutrition.

Suitable for

The ant colony is only suitable if you have knowledge and experience with keeping ants. We expect to be able to offer an Ant Farm especially for this species in the beginning of 2020

Pick up only

Because this is a difficult, specific species, sensitive to temperature / moisture, we do not send it by post. In addition, we are happy to give brief advice when purchasing such a colony.

Comments A very special species that you can encounter everywhere in zoos and museums. Many hobbyists are fascinated by ants because they have seen this species in a zoo. As did the founder of Ant's Kingdom, Jan-Peter Oudenampsen. What is it special that we now also breed these ants ourselves and can offer them for the hobby at home or in a zoo, pet store or museum.
