You asked for it - you got it! The Antworks Habitat and the Antworks Illuminator - all in one box!
It's Award Winning AntWorks!
A highly sophisticated ant farm that lights up! The most captivating insect toy we've ever seen! Based upon a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how insects-ants, successfully tunnel in microgravity. Antworks captures the attention of people like us, who find this novelty attractive, intriguing and a thrilling medium for insect study! An excellent educational tool for the home, biology classroom, or any science teacher!
NASA scientists thought of everything. Nutrient gel means that THE ANTS NEED NO FOOD OR WATER! The AntWorks gel is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new ant colony. All you do is sit back and enjoy the view as ants live, work & tunnel in the nutritious and non-toxic gel creating series upon series of intricate tunnels.
Ants are highly intelligent, organized, numerous, and strong. With their largely developed brains, their compassion for fellow ants and ability to work as a team, their amazing physical strength-often lugging 20 times their body weight, and an innate predisposition for a healthy attitude toward work- Antfarms have benefits beyond a simple study of insects!

The nutrient, non-toxic gel is formulated to last up to one (1) year and provide ALL the food and water the ant colony needs to live in their antfarm habitat. Usually ants will live anywhere from 2 - 6 months and in the "AntWorks" habitat they are 'safe' from disease, cold/wet, and predators.
Also, whenever ants are attacked, it is the OLDEST worker (all female) ants that exit the colony to protect it...so if you capture you own ants, you will never know exactly HOW long they will live. Maybe days, weeks or months.
Also, whenever an ant "expires", their buddies normally carry them to the TOP of the gel (where they place the 'tunnel debris')...so you can always OPEN the lid and take them out, and if you wish, later put in NEW, FRESHER ants to replace the ones that have expired.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.

My rating of AntWorks Illuminated Combo
Posted 4/14/2014 by Melanie
We LOVE our ant farm. Being able to see through the tunnels and watch the ants working is amazing! The LED lights REALLY help to illuminate the tunnels. I'm really glad we decided to order the one WITH the lights.
