Essential Info

Do you have a budding nature lover in your home? Help your kids learn about science and society with the AntWorks™ Illuminated. Antworks Illuminated is a self-contained environment for an amazing species of insect. Far more advanced than an ordinary ant farm, the AntWorks Illuminated houses ants in a space-age gel formulated by NASA to test how ants successfully tunnel in a zero-gravity environment. The AntWorks gel is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony. Ants are not included with this kit.


What's Included

  • 1x - AntWorks
  • 1x - Base
  • 1x - Magnifying Glass
  • 1x - Extreme Zoom Lens
  • 1x - Ant Catching/Tunnel Starter Tool
  • 1x - 110V Power Adapter
  • More Info

    Watch ants live, work and tunnel in the nutritious and non-toxic gel as they create series upon series of intricate tunnels. Since the ants can eat the gel, you'll never need to provide food or water, and since the gel is clear, you'll be able to watch the tunnel architecture in 3D, a far more in-depth perspective than traditional, soil-based ant farms. A blue LED base is included in this kit to illuminate the habitat at night.

    The AntWorks Illuminated includes a container with a special gel formulation, the LED base, and a magnifying glass with which one can even see hairs on the ants! You'll get the tunnels started, but the ants will do the real work, creating their own environment of walls, hills, and tunnels.

    My kids and I have enjoyed this ant farm very much! It's amazing to see what they do underground through the gel, and watch them work, I recommend this to everyone.

    TERYN B -- newport beach, CA   1/26/2013
    Fantastic ant farm. This is the second time we have had a similar ant farm and my kids are just as fascinated the second time around. You must get the lighted version - it makes the tunnels look incredible!
    SUSAN -- croswell, MI   11/29/2012
    Love this light up ant farm. Fifth graders are sooooo excited to observe them daily. Great product!
    MADELINE -- austin, TX   5/5/2011
    Arrived in good condition and on time.
    JOHN -- chatsworth, CA   1/19/2009
    My 5-year old son makes it a ritual every morning to check on his ant's progress. Set-up couldn't be easier and I highly suggest ordering the ants online 5-7 days prior to purchasing the Antworks. This piece of artwork has provided the whole family hours of amusement.
    RACHELLE -- waterloo, IA   11/5/2008
    Great product! We are enjoying watching our ants tunnel. So fun!!!
    MICHEL -- moorestown, NJ   9/18/2008
    Item arrived quickly and was exactly as described! good value
    RICHARD -- gambier, OH   4/18/2008
    A very unique approach to observing ant behavior. Also, a very stylish design. It is rather interesting to watch the ants initially build tunnels and interact. However, my only complaint is that the ants eventually stopped building tunnels and began to sit aimlessly at the bottom of the tunnels. The ants also climb to the top and appear to be interested in escaping the container.
    CHRISTINA -- rancho palos verdes, CA   3/19/2008
    Love it!
    JOHN -- macungie, PA   1/26/2008
    Looks interesting. Hard to get the kids interested until ants are introduced. Did not like the idea that ants cost as much as the farm.
    BonnieOne1 -- stamford, CT   1/24/2008

    We are still waiting on the ants . . . but I bet it will be cool!
    DAWN -- cupertino, CA   1/20/2007
    It was a gift for a friend and he loved it.
    CAROL -- belton, SC   1/14/2007
    This has brought the whole family enjoyment and is very educational for our grandson. Now my son has ordered one for his office.
