The ants go marching one by one hurrah hurrah!

Satchel is wild about this gift that he received from his Grandparents... an ant farm by Antworks! It is much cooler than the flimsy sand original farm I had as a kid. Antworks ant farms contain a specially formulated gel that provides food and moisture to the colony and helps thwart any bacteria that could potentially harm them. The green gel is completely clear so you see precisely what goes on below the surface and it is fascinating! The built in night light is an awesome touch.

Satch decided that he would name all his ants Alicia (because they're girls). However, when the Harvester Ants arrived, he took one look at those large mandibles and named them all "Tweezer".

The crew went straight away constructing their new home. In just a couple of days, it was quite a crib!

This is fantastic. I think my own bug lover would really enjoy an ant home like this one.
