[IMAGE 1 of 6] This Pogonomyrmex magnacanthus nest was approximately 3 inches in diameter and consisted of a barely visible, eroded ‘mound’ with a single entrance, located in loose, sandy soil. Some workers were tentatively peering out of the nest entrance, while a few others foraged singly. Workers were ‘shy’ and non-aggressive.
