I was never one to play with Barbies. I was always the science kid going to dinosaur and space camp at the Natural History Museum. So, when I saw this Space-Age Habitat for AntKind, I was super stoked. And, it’s not a space-age habitat just because of the neon LED lights. The non-toxic gel that these ants hang out in (and eat) was created in a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment “to study animal life in space and test how ants tunnel in microgravity” (Thinkgeek.com). So, this antfarm is SUPER scientific and a healthy environment for the ants. Now, ants can be pets instead of pests! After all, who wouldn’t want a pet that can lift twenty times their body weight, eat with two stomachs, and blink with three eyes? Plus, ants are way better workers than humans, since they have a keen ability to communicate and exercise teamwork. Get your Space-Age Habitat for AntKind here!
