Today i've found two dried out larva's (they became brown) in the Messor barbarus outer world. I guess they can't eat the hull of the larva's so they suck them dry i guess.
I hope there will be enough energy in the larva's for the new breed etc..
When i look inside of the nest i where able to spot the place where they keep the larva. nearly all of the rooms are at the glass so i'm able to see them well.
Unfortunately the colony prefers to stay inside of the nest, so i often cant spot any ants.. (watching into the nest gives a lot of stress).
I hope that with the grow of the colony the courage of the colony will rise and that there will be ants outside all the time.
I guess the colony have about 50 workers, but it could also be 100 or 30
(The disadvantage of a sand nest).
