OT, Mega ant farms. For Sale.

Message from Stan Hayward CA

As a kid I used to make big antfarms..one was 2x2 1/2' I used red Harvester ants I collected inland from Hayward,a city named Livermore. They have hot summers and you will find insects there that you never see in the cool bay area.
So,here we are decades later and I was thinking how back then I wished I could add Army or Driver ants. Seeing them on Wild Kingdom (in color!) and NET TV That was PBS in those days.
So I'm on the internet...and can you believe it- Australian trap jawed ants for sale...if you live in the UK. He even includes the queen. A few hundred dollars.but right now he's sold out.

I just thought how wild that is. Oh,and the Australian driver ants? Not for sale to anyone under 18. They have a wicked bite and sting-lol
