So, greetings for all of you, I'm a beginner ant keeper.
I was chilling outside, when i noticed a slightly large ant with a large gaster for the rest of the body, so i thought that it can be a queen, but since i'm new to this world, i'm not sure if it is or not, so i decided to ask your help.
So, is this a queen ant? if yes, what specie is it? is it semi-claustral or full-claustral?

It appears to be a queen. If you want a realistic id and not a guess you need to measure it in millimeters and say where it was caught and when and better pictures
