    Crematogater auberti are a black to brown ant that grows extremely fast and are very aggressive They can spray venom through their specialised stinger They make nests in dead trees, under rocks and in solid ground. 

    In the wild they often drink nectar from flowers or tend to aphids for sugars but in captivity they will drink honey, sugar water and protein jelly.

    They grow to a few thousand workers and need a lot of protein to grow fast they'll eat mealworms, protein jelly, crickets, cockroaches and fruit flies prekilled insects are recommended but fruit flies can be live fed on occasion

    They like high temperatures between 24c-30c (give them a good gradient e.g one side of the nest being a lower temperature and the other side heated) and like lower humidity (give them a good gradient e.g one side of the nest being a lower temperature and the other side wetter)
