|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|

I found this ant in my back yard behind some rocks. The temperature kind of felt humid that day, if I had to guess the temperature I would say it was around 70-75 degrees F. When collecting the ant it seemed to be slower than most but it was able to dodge my trap by weaving through the rocks.

I sent my insect to the research lab but they have not contacted me back and I have not been able to use the gel imaging yet.
