An Eco-Centric Gel Ant Farm
Lighted Ecosystem Ant Habitat comes with grass seeds which can be planted in the nutrient-rich gel medium. You create an ecosystem inside your ant habitat in which ants and grass thrive together. Both of them get their energy from the light blue gel which has been derived from sugars, amino acids, and seaweed extracts.
Such a setup makes it easier for kids to understand how ants live in the natural world and why they are known as ecosystem engineers. The nutrient-rich gel is completely non-toxic and reusable for a number of ant colonies.
Decorate Your Ant Habitat’s Outworld
The surface of the gel medium in your Lighted Ecosystem Ant Habitat is known as the outworld. It represents the natural world, outside the colony, for your ants. Ants forage for food and make their graveyard site on this outworld, just like in the wild.
After planting the grass, kids can decorate the outworld with colorful rocks and decorative palm trees that have been provided in order to personalize this region.
Investigating Ants In Their Natural Environment
Ant farms are usually kept in a dark place so that the absence of an external light can make the ants feel like home in their habitat. Soft blue light of the Lighted Ecosystem Ant Habitat helps you to observe your ants in such a condition without disturbing their natural way of life.
The curved shape of the habitat makes it easier for you to keep a close eye on all your ants while the magnifier allows you to follow them as they dig tunnels, sleep and eat. This ant farm kit has been meticulously prepared to take care of everything while you enjoy keeping ants.
Recommended for ages 8 years and up, with adult supervision
