The first ant farm was made by NASA. The idea was to take an ant colony up to space so astronauts could study ant behavior at zero gravity. This invention was later marketed to a general public, so anyone who wanted to could observe ants making tunnels, eating, and living together.

This ant farm is made out of an extra sturdy acrylic material. It's filled with a non-toxic, reusable, blue silicone gel.

All you have to do is catch about 15 ants and put them inside. Prick the gel two or three times with a small stick to help the ants start their tunnels. They will start tunneling through the silicone as if it were soil. This silicone is not just an ecological habitat for these insects, it also provides them with the food they need.

Maintenance is so simple, anyone can take care of them: you simply need to open the container's lid once a month to aerate the farm. That's it!

Some interesting facts about ants:

  • There are an estimated 10 quadrillion ants living on Earth.
  • It is estimated that some ant colonies contain over 20 million individuals.
  • Along with sharks, ants are among the planet's oldest animals.
  • They're the strongest creatures in proportion to their size. They can carry 10-20 times their weight.
  • Ant are also among the insects with the longest life-spans.
