Funnel Ants are a species of ants that are characterised by their large funnel-shaped nest entrances, which give them their common name. The workers are easily recognisable by their long legs, although they are not particularly fast-moving. The queens of this species are also known for being relaxed and easy to care for, making them a great option for anyone looking to raise a colony.
