Quite a large ant in Kambah

    Quite big ant in Kambah

In view of the pathological interest the RiotACT Community takes in all forms of Formicidae, here is my contribution to the influx of giant ants [complete with a coin for scale]. While not 4-5 cm and thick as my thumb, this ant has the value of having been photographed. She and her sisters don’t seem very fierce.

Who’s seen and photographed a bigger local ant?

[ED (Kramer) – Who would have thought RiotACT would become Canberra’s leading authority on ants?]

What’s Your opinion?

I do believe you really, but then I believed Overheard last night when he told me how my wine should be pronounced as ‘car-donnay’ ….

Poptop’s ants are definitely the biggest!

4 – 5 cm and thick as my thumb … missing local children and cats get dragged into undergrowth ….

You may scoff granny, but the beast-ant I saw before christmas is out there somewhere…

I once strayed into Kambah. Didnt notice the ants but saw some rather large bogans.

You must have been either on the Marconi side of Drakeford Dr. or the Tuggeranong end of the Kambah playing fields:)

I am beginning to believe my ants are the biggest!
