Although trapjaw ants are among the more common queens I find around my house in Punggol, it's really hard to get a fertile one. They are unable to climb smooth surfaces, making them a bit easier to contain, but their sting is one of the more painful ones among local ant species. They also have totally badass mandibles that snap with such force you can even hear them! Here's a video of my trapjaw queen being fed a mealworm's head. Listen out for the snap!
