The Coolest Ant Farm EVER Devised
Observe the daily habits of ants illuminated by a bright, blue LED, as they tunnel through a blue gel. This miraculous gel is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity.
This space-age gel serves as both habitat and nutrition for the ants. Watch as the ants turn a brick of aqua-blue gel into a fascinating colony of tunnels!
This version of the Antworks kits includes the LED illuminator, so now you can even view the ants at night as they move throughout a blue gel.
Runs of included 110v. AC power adapter.
