Shipping Note: : The kit instructions include an order form for live harvester ants, redeemable in all US states except HI. (When you order ants, there is an additional charge starting at $5, with multiple options available.)
The AntWorks "space-age habitat" isn't your typical ant farm! Instead of sand, AntWorks uses a unique nutrient gel based on a NASA experiment testing ants' ability to tunnel in microgravity. With this kit, you can watch ants up close as they chew their way through the see-through gel, creating fascinating tunnel designs.
All you need to do is add ants. Use the order form in the back of the instruction book to order ants, or catch your own. The nutrient gel takes care of feeding and watering, making this a complete, easy-to-care-for habitat that's great for all ages.
The clear acrylic habitat is 6.5" long x 6.0" tall x 1.25" deep. This kit includes a magnifying glass, high-power "extreme zoom lens", tunnel starter tool, instructions, and a form for live harvester ants, redeemable in all US states except HI. We recommend Ants Alive, which offers fast delivery and boasts 20+ years of live ant distribution. No assembly required. The AntWorks gel is non-toxic.
Antworks was chosen as one of the Best Inventions of 2005 by TIME magazine.
