Ants are social insects with a fascinating social structure and communication network, and with this self-sufficient gel habitat you’ll have the perfect viewing platform to observe the colony in action! You’ll be able to watch and learn all about them as they tunnel through the gel, communicate via touching each other with their antennae, and work together. Plus, for a close up view of them in detail, you can use the included magnifier to observe their various differences to each other and other species of ants!

The kit contains everything you need to get started, except for the ants which you can easily collect from a nearby park. The habitat is entirely self-contained and all you need to do is have fun watching your very own ant colony, with no need at all to gather them food and water. The instruction booklet included also contains loads of interesting facts about ants and how to get the most out of your gel ant farm. And don’t forget to only gather ants from the same colony, otherwise they’ll fight! This kit makes the perfect gift for those interested in nature and what happens even when we can’t actually see it.
