AntWorks is based on a NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity. The Fascinations® AntWorks™ allows you to study the behavior of ants in a unique, self-contained environment. Its special gel is full of nutrients specially formulated for the needs of the ant. Because the gel is clear, you can see tunnel architecture develop in 3-D. Our Ant Works includes a container with a special gel formulation, magnifying glass, 20 page booklet detailing fascinating ant facts, and a special ‘extreme magnification lens’ with which one can even see hairs on the ants! Simply insert ants into the clear nutrient gel, secure the lid and let the 3-D tunneling show begin! Either collect your own ants or order via mail (ordering details included in packaging)

The Ant Works is filled with a highly nutritious non-toxic gel into which you make four small holes to get the tunnel network started. Now add your ants into the Ant Works, replace the lid and watch. Within days the ants will burrow out an amazing pattern of channels, each clearly visible in cross-section through the walls of the container. Maintenance is minimal. Besides providing a safe ecologically-correct habitat, the gel also provides the ants' food. You simply need to open the lid for a moment once a month to aerate the interior. Easy to care for, once inside the AntWorks the ants require NO aditional food or water.
