Queen Ant Melba was named after Isaac's Great Aunt Melba. The scrapbook is a community project made by various individuals. Different individuals created their pages and sent them in to be added to the scrapbook. It is a compilation of memories, ideas, articles, fun ant facts and other projects done in Isaac's name. Thanks everyone for the great pages!

    Long live Queen Esther!

    Meet Cory, Sierra, Joey, Seth, Matthias, and Tyrus. They have adopted a Myrmecocystus mexicanus queen ant and named her Queen Esther. Thanks for letting me spend the afternoon with your wonderful family! The boys did a great job going over the care instructions!
