Yellow, brownish yellow. Very tough and fast growing ants, which will grow to a great colony size. These ants can take down large prey once there are majors in the colony, these ants have been given the nickname big-headed ants because the majors have really big heads, unlike other species such as Messor Barbarus the majors of this species have extremely big heads compared to body ratio.
These ants do require a bit of experience but are not hard to keep.
