Buy Now Ant Habitat From Antworks

Creepy crawlies may appear dull and boring, but this 'AntWorks' brings action and intrigue to an otherwise mundane viewing. Ants can lift up to 20 times their own body weight; have two stomachs and three eyes. They often work together, commonly in large groups, to achieve everyday tasks. The guys over at NASA have worked together in a similar fashion to create a healthy habitat for your ant collection. The habitat allows you to view the routes taken by individual ants as they alter the aqua blue gel into a spectrum of different colors.

AntWorks is based on an advanced form of gel which ensures a safe and vibrant existence for both the ants and the onlooker. The effects are stunning, and the more ants used, the more intricate, extensive and elaborate the paths become.

The idea was derived from NASA, during an experimentation phase for animal life and existence in space.

+ The AntWorks Gel (Non Toxic) is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony.
+ Watch the ants' progress and weave through the gel illuminating the surrounding areas.
+ An LED illuminator is included to offer not only a habitat but also light functionality.

+ Easy to maintain since ants surprisingly require no food or water.
+ Case dimensions: 6.5"x 5.5"x 1.25"

Each 'Antworks' includes the following:

Case and gel
Magnifying glass
Four blue LED's embedded in base
Ant catching / tunnel starting tool
Instruction booklet with interesting facts about ants
No ants included. With over a trillion ants in existence, go find some!

So with the cool effects and lighting displays this really is an unconventional yet attractive piece, bringing you closer to nature and retaining that natural feeling. Just remember to close the case!
