Shipping Note: When you redeem the coupon in the kit for live ants, there is an additional S&H 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, by redeeming the included coupon or catching 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 coupon 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.
