Discover the world of ants in a totally unique and exciting way. Ant-O-Sphere is an easy to build, easy to connect and easy to learn 'ant colony' you can have in your home!

Uniquely Realistic:
This kit has one chamber (pod) and it functions as a complete underground ant nest. By collecting more kits and more pods you can mimic the actual layout of a huge leafcutter ant colony in the tropics. The patented chambers are life size, the passageways are lifesize too.

Unique Red Dark:
Most ants think red light is darkness. so we can see them in the red underground pod but they can't see us!

Unique Viewing:
Three types of magnifier let you see the most intimate moments of ant life without disturbing the ants.

Uniquely Creative:
You start with one chamber. By collecting more you can build a typical colony, then you can bild an INFINITE range of designs to see how ants adapt to them. Add more pods later.

Uniquely Flexible:
With clear daylight pods (available in other kits) you can set up ponds and gardens that grow real plants and make oxygen - like a 'forst in bubbles'. You can eve fill the extra red 'underground' pods and add worms! They all interlink!

Uniquely Educational:
