Angle Jungle Colony highlights these extraordinary creatures’ abilities to perform unbelievable feats of strength. Watch your garden circus performers tussle food through a maze and travel at dazzling heights across the tightrope.
The transparent case allows you to observe and study ants as they continue on their daily routines of life. Observe their contributions to the underground by adding soil and any type of ants to the kit. Watch them dig tunnels to wrestle food through, and learn how they work together to provide for and protect the colony. For budding young naturalists this kit is a must have!
By creating your own ecosystem with this kit you can observe how the colony reacts to a variety of environments. The Ant Jungle can also be combined with Worm Farm Hoedown to create an even bigger ecosystem for your underground critters.
