Study ants in a space-age way with a completely self-contained habitat!
This kit comes through a special purchase at a reduced price with more gel base than its well-advertised competitor!
The AntBase Kit is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity. The AntBase Gel 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. Easy to care for - Ants need NO food or water. Click here for more on the ant - astronaut story.
