Camponotus Maculatus (african)

From: £49.99

Camponotus maculatus are one of the largest ants in Africa!


These ants grow extremely quickly and are very entertaining to watch! They are similar growth to c.nicobariensis, but in my opinion, faster.

Their workers are very light in colour, so perfect for feeding colours sugar syrups to change the colour of their gasters!
