Antworks Habitat

This is for the Habitat and magnifier only.  LED base is not Included in this purchase.

The original AntWorks  ® Habitat Gel based ant colony kit.
Based upon some cool research by NASA.  The ants actually eat and drink off of the nutrient based gel.


  • AntWorks is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity.
  • The AntWorks Gel (Non Toxic) is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony.
  • Watch ants live, work and tunnel in the nutritious and non-toxic gel as they create series upon series of intricate tunnels.
  • The included LED illuminator acts as your Antworks base and when plugged in will shine four bright blue LEDs up through your torquoise gel. The ultimate nightlight is upon us! (120v).
  • Easy to care for - Ants need NO food or water.
  • Case is 6.5"x 5.5"x 1.25"
