Does anyone have ways to identify ant species? That would make collecting possible without fear of putting dangerous species into the viv with your frogs...

Any help will be great.

I have been searching the net and the best I can find is http://lancaster.unl.edu/enviro/ants/ , but that is many for nebraska. You should search (your state), ant identification on google. You'll get some results from your local university.

From what I have researched, I guess we can feed two noded ants, but not one-noded ants.

Let us know how/where you get them and how your PDF react.

Go to tincs.com, click on gadgets and then read about ants. The species he says to use appears to be commonly called 2 node, while the ones he says not to use happen to be two noded.

Yes the do have a venom, but it doesn't bother the frogs. I have a good friend who is an environmental biologist that told me about these guys. He has been feeding his frogs these. All I know for 100% is that the little black ants under rotting wood make good food. :D
