DESCRIPTION

This LED-illuminated Space-Age Habitat isn't your typical ant farm! Instead of sand, the habitat 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.

What makes this ant farm special is its LED illuminator base that shines light up through the clear gel. The LED illuminator has three bulbs to uniformly illuminate the ants' home.

Once the habitat is set up, all you need to do is add ants (catch your own or order from a third party). 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 10.25" long x 8.5" tall x 2.375" deep. This kit includes a magnifying glass, small container with a lid (for catching ants), tunnel starter tool, basil seeds, special liquid and powder for gel, and instructions. The Space-Age Habitat gel is non-toxic.

Requires three 1.5V AG13 button batteries and ants, not included. For battery-free operation, you'll need a USB to mini USB cord.

To order live ants instead of catching them, we recommend Ants Alive, which offers fast delivery and boasts 20+ years of live ant distribution.
