The unique Antfarm to study an ant colony. A high quality nest of handmade plaster. Both front and back tightly mounted with 2 acrylic sheets that are securely fixed with 6 screws, so your ants will never escape anymore. The colony can be connected to the antfarm as shown in the fourth picture visible (we supply you with the connection pieces for free).
The arena you can decorate to your own preferences and tastes.
The farm is perfectly suited for antcolonies like Lasius, Myrmica, Messor, Formica and Camponotus. This gypsum antfarm can be positioned horizontally, vertically, in portrait or landscape. There are four connection options to connect other nests or arenas. We recommend using one of the openings to keep the nest slightly damp with included pipette.
The set is expandable by connecting tubes to other antfarms and arenas. Because these are handmade nests, the color, corridor structure and the material can vary slightly per product. The images give a clear picture.
