A wonderful photo acerola. Do you know if it has something in it`s mouth?
Are the orange disc shaped items a lichen of some sort on the rock? Really great for a live ant.

They are lichens. There is nothing in its mouth its just the inside of its mandibles. I upload another picture. It's a little different.
Thanks.
