Enjoy The New Style Of Ant Farms

In Lighted Gel Ant Habitat, translucent nutrient-rich gel replaces sand as the tunneling medium. Not only does it allow you to clearly observe your ants but it also helps in maintaining a favorable temperature inside the ant habitat.

The curved design of the habitat, which makes it easy to view your ants from all angles, is another improvement over the traditional ant farms. The nutrient-rich gel makes sure that you don’t have to worry about the feeding schedule of your ants.

Escape-Proof Gel Habitat

Lighted Gel Ant Habitat is escape-proof with a secure lid. Your pet ants will remain safely inside the ant habitat and dig an intricate network of tunnels in the blue gel medium. The base of the ant farm has been made sturdy enough to prevent any unintentional tipping.

The gel medium is composed of sugars, seaweed extracts, and amino acids. As ants get all their nutrient and water needs satisfied from the gel, they stay inside the habitat instead of trying to break free.

Learning About Ants While Having Fun

Blue LED lights will illuminate your ant farm with a soft glow. Since ant farms have to be typically placed in dark rooms to simulate natural underground conditions, Lighted Gel Ant Habitat makes it possible for you to follow what each one of your pet ants is doing with ease.

Use the magnifier provided with the learning kit to bring your ants into clear focus. You can even watch them interact with each other with the help of their antennae. There is an endless amount of fun to be had and ant secrets to be uncovered.

    Ants arrived largely intact and lasted. We bought this the end of Feb and as of April 14, there are still about 10 ants alive and active. Could see the ants easily in the blue gel. Habitat was nice, seemed a little small for 25 med sized ants. Would recommend this one.

    I am a 4th grade teacher, and I bought the farm for my classroom. They love it. Only 4 kids can observe it at a time because it is smaller. The farm has been “accidentally” turned upside down, tipped over, and basically over loved. None of the ants have escaped, and the daily curiosity is amazing.

    I got the gel ant farm for my 7 year old nephew. He really loved it, and can’t wait to watch them dug tunnels in their gel. Easy enough to put together, and came with all you need. I like that the farm is different from the plain sand ones we had as kids, this one is really neat.

    What amazing insight into the world of ants! This order arrived earlier than expected, to the delight of expectant children who were eager to observe these interesting insects. The ants and their blue gel habitat were securely packaged and arrived safely. We introduced 25 live ants to their new home, and almost immediately they began exploring. Overnight, they had begun digging from the surface toward the bottom. The whole process is fascinating and so educational! It’s really been incredible to watch how they work and see how they tunnel.

    it’s good – but i didn’t realize ants are included. i was hoping to save for a xmas gift, then when i opened the box i realized the ants would never live until xmas! so, my daughter got an early gift. very easy to set up – just 30 seconds and then you can start watching them go to town.

    Most of them died early maybe two weeks but it was cool while it lasted.

    This is an excellent product. Our 6 year old it thrilled and ants are now one of his two favorite animals. We keep it in the coolest, most dim room in the house (one on the north side) and are excited to see the ant’s progress every 12 hours. The whole family is enjoying it. I bought it with ants included and am pleased with the survival rate: only about 3 dead. I ordered it for Christmas according the time frame shown on it item’s purchase page which meant I received it and refrigerated it for 5 days. I opened it promptly upon receiving it. If we had received it on a summer day it may have been a different outcome with the ants sitting in the hot sun on the south side of the house all afternoon before we opened the package.

    The grandchildren loved watching the ants
    Crawling around the blue gel.

    My little girl loves watching the ants in their habitat. Several were DOA but it’s to be expected shipping live insects.

    Great my nephew loves his ant farm.

    It has been a month and only 3 ants are still alive. It was fun to see them make tunnels, but retrieving the dead ones is not easy with some still alive. The children have enjoyed watching the tunneling. A pretty good gift, all in all.
