  • Camponotus maculatus is a beautiful species from Africa. These ants are quite big and grow fast and large in size. 

    They like to nest in sand or dry forests. 

    Camponotus Maculatus is monogyne meaning their can only be one egg laying queen in the colony. Colonies can grow up to 10,000 workers! 

    The queen can get up to 18mm and the workers up to 16mm!
