I'm Jersey Bug, and I just randomly decided to pull all of the ant farms out of my closet and put them together, and find my own queen ant and start an awesome ant colony. Here's a picture of my end result:
Behind it on my desk are a fake electronic fish tank (The fish rotate around the background, which rotates at a slower speed.) and my longhorn beetle larva, which don't even count as a pet because it's like having a pet log with a bug inside it. I did take that picture that's currently my laptop's background, it's an Antlion.
This is a diagram of the ant farm, so you can see where the ants can crawl and where they can't, hopefully this will help the future tunnels make more sense
I found a small colony of Spine-Waisted Ants, Aphaenogaster rudis, at the base of a tree in that has a large pile of rocks underneath it. The queen was under a piece of bark, and she was very similar to the workers in size. She was like a giant worker in a suit of armor. I managed to collect her, along with about 10 larva and over 50 workers. It turns out Spine-Waisted ants are extremely smart ants, along with being slender and agile.
A few years ago I came across this unlucky spider was safe in the middle of its web (In a wide crevice in the bark of a tree), But some interesting ant behavior- A group of about six Spine-Waisted ants where plucking the threads of the web (to get at the spider)!
Another example of their intelligence is that if a worker comes across a liquid food, it will use a piece of soil as a sponge and carry the soil back to the colony
Here is a picture of an individual worker before I dropped her in the ant farm:
