Antfarm Master Messor set

We imagine making a choice between different antfarms is difficult, especially with the wide range of products for keeping ants currently available. That's why we have put together a special set that makes sure you have an excellent starting point for this super fun hobby!

The ant farm Major, molded out of plaster is the heart of your set-up. A unique handmade Ant's Kingdom product, firmly mounted with the best materials. With this antfarm we believe offering you both the most sturdy and operative product in ant keeping currently available.

In the middle of the Ant Farm surrounding the watersupply the chambers are very shallow (approximately 4mm), this makes the colony very easy to observe. The chambers on the outside of the nest are deeper (approximately 7 mm) ideal for the workers to stack their food supply and seeds. All the chambers and corridors are connected to each other. Amaze yourself and watch how the ants make the nest their home and experience how intelligent these extraordinary animals are.

On both sides of the nest we have made an opening which makes it easy to connect the nest testtube with the colony and for example an arena or foodbasket. 

You understand that we are a bit proud of this product and that's why we call it the Master Series. We have developed this antfarm series based on our many years of experience in breeding ant colonies.

Because it's a handmade nest, the color scheme and the material per product can vary slightly. The pictures give a clear indication.
