Particularities: This Messor species has a very striking colour with some red parts on the head and thorax. Their colouring is highly variable, with smaller workers almost black, whereas major ants can have a red head and thorax. Just like all other Messor species, these feed mostly on seeds which they store in their nests, opening them as and when needed to chew them up in large communities to make ‘ant bread’.
