he should be fine, just make sure to keep eye out for any swelling but I think he should be fine in all honesty because they would probably eat them in the wild to :)

Does anyone know any tips to keep the ants away? He loved being outside in the sun and I would hate to not take him out again just because of bugs.

I personally wouldn’t let the ants bother you because in the wild they would see them also so unless they’re full on attacking you I wouldn’t worry but if only are that worried I eWorld just get some / bug spray but it won’t help because time a tomorrow comes they will be back :)

Normal ants shouldn't be any issue. Fire ants maybe.. but i'm not really sure on that one.

Your best bet if you're concerned about it would probably be just to let him be out in a spot not so near the ants. But like Jimmia said, there shouldn't be any concern there :mrgreen:
