The light-up gel habitat is inspired by the 2003 NASA space shuttle experiment to study animal life in space. NASA wanted to test how ants successfully tunnel in micro gravity. Now you can study the behavior of ants in this unique, self-contained environment. Watch as ants live, work, and tunnel in the nutritious (non-toxic) gel, as they crate intricate tunnels. Our unique LED lighting system reflects off the tunnels for an amazing study of nature.
