scientific learning: ants farm

AntWorks - Space Age Ant Habitat
An Ant Farm for the Modern Times
With the AntWorks ant farm, you can watch ants create 3-D tunnels in the amazing space gel. This miraculous gel is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity. This space-age gel serves as both habitat and nutrition for the ants. Watch as the ants turn a brick of aqua-blue gel into a fascinating colony of tunnels!
This is the first time anything has been created that enables you to view these awesome creatures at work. The AntWorks Gel is non-toxic and contains the necessary nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony. Watch ants live, work and tunnel in the nutritious gel as they create series upon series of intricate tunnels.
This ant farm is easy to care for since the ants need NO food or water. AntWorks includes the case (6.5"x 5.5"x 1.25"), the gel, ant catching/tunnel starting tool, an instruction booklet with interesting facts about ants and a form to order your ants via mail - Ants are NOT included!

    I am posting to all the Antworks blogs out there, in the hopes of preventing others from making the mistake of purchasing an Antworks Space-Age Habitat from Antworks Toys.

    It's been a four-month ordeal for me, complete with heaps of dead ants, disgusting mould and mildew, and appalling customer service. I would strongly discourage anyone from buying this product.
