Particularities: This species inhabits the steppes and deserts of North and Central America. In larger colonies, individual worker ants serve as food reserves (honey pots). When under attack, this species stands up on his hind legs in order to appear bigger. The founding stage is very difficult; as a result, we only give out small colonies, which helps prevent most associated issues.
