Ant with Leaf, Insect in Resin
Approved by USFWS (Fish & Wildlife) sustainably sourced and legally obtained. This display has a big visual impact for such a tiny specimen, almost as if it’s a simple diorama with only two elements. This is a real ant in resin with a real leaf. The ant specimen is (Pheidologeton divrersus) the East Indian Harvest Ant.
It is a species of marauder ant found widely distributed throughout Asia. They live in large colonies, like most ant species, which are often found in soil or under rocks. This species preys on small animals such as insects. The minors of this species have been observed ‘hitching a ride’ on the large ants so as to save energy while moving along long trails.
As will all bugs in resin, size shape and coloration can vary. Measures approx. 1 1/2 inches square by 1/2 inch thick. Your purchase will come boxed with a cute little organza bag, ready to give as a gift if you choose.
