Particularities: This species features a very interesting hunting behaviour and has excellent eyesight. The ants identify their prey optically and attack them with a single jump, paralysing them with their sting in a manner similar to that of digger wasps. They sometimes waggle their abdomen while hunting, in a manner reminiscent of the way that cats wag their tail. These animals are very inquisitive and barely aggressive, so that they are well-suited for keeping in a shared tank. All of our colonies come with a mated queen which raises the workers.
