Formica is a common genus in Europe. They love sugar and are quick on their feet. Many of the easier species are black, either matt black or shiny. Both colour variants look awesome. Formica builds amazing natural dirt nests, many times utilizing debris to create mounds around their entrances. This means that natural vivarium setups are excellent for them.
Black European Formica species are considered beginner friendly.
