Searching for the legendary blue ants of the Mt. Banahaw rainforest proved to be quite an adventure!

      no, because you wouldn't be able to sustain them. Their from a jungle, and jungles are very different from what your ants are.

    Yes, you should get a colony. Look at all you could learn to help the others. With so many species in danger, what if you are the only one who would be willing to go to the needed level of keeping them in a replicated habitat and possibly bringing them back some day or saving them all together.

    yeah im close to the rain forest i just need to cross over a bridge and there but blue ants are normal here there aernt annoying just that they always show up on annoying places like the sink, whenever i accidentally soak them they always bite me

    I must ask, and appreciate if anyone, including the fans, could answer me. Are you not afraid to be bitten by some deadly animal, living in the rainforest? Surely there must be dangers involved living like this. Am I exaggerating the risks?

    You can give them a good life, but they are big ants so they need a big home. It will be beautiful, especially if you combine it with orange and clue and green plants. If anyone can give them a great life its you, but get a queen first.

    4mins intro sounds like watching a whole video. Lol nice one. Lemme add that the way how you sound is interesting as it caught my attention. Thanks for featuring my country Philippines. Sure lot of uncommon creatures are found in our country and that makes us unique. Philippines itself is paradise. Better keep things the way nature does.. Its a good decision you let them where they should be. You have my respect.

    Dude !!!! There are no videos of these Blue Ants, not even Sir David Attenborough. You need / should do a whole video about this Ant, and gather as much facts you can about.There is a video called Astonishing Ants, you could do it in that kind of style 😉

    I would venture you should attempt to learn what exactly the species needs to survive and thrive. Once you have discovered their needs and wants are, THEN you could attempt to find a Queen and take her home but I would make sure that you provide them with the space they need to not only Survive but THRIVE. Because your passion runs high for these beautiful creatures, it would be unseemly for you to use an old structure for them. I would make the biggest Structure for them that you have ever made before, and If I were You, I would make them a permanent member of your household, keep the colony as long as humanly possible. After all, it isn't every day that an entomologist enthusiast finds his own personal Holy Grail, and once he Has that Holy Grail, does he leave it alone? Or does he keep it in a preferred place of honor, to be treated with love and deference, and given everything they need to live happily? Do it Arthur, yank that Sword from the stone and take it home and keep it and dress it and make it yours! But only do so when you know that you can make them thrive! (sorry for the jumble of allegories, I couldn't resist!)
