Description: Polyrhachis vermiculosa are known as the Golden-Tailed spiny Ant due to their golden gaster. They're a beautiful species and are rather timid and shy. They show the most activity during the night. More of an arboreal species but will do well in most setups. A rather hairy species of ant. Very easy to keep and contain due to their manageable mature colony size, hardy species.
