Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

This unique system mimics the actual layout of leaf-cutter ant colonies in the tropics. The 4 spherical pods and the tubing that connects them together are life-size replicas of the chambers and passageways that these ants would normally construct underground. Some of the pods are tinted red, so that the ants believe that they are in total darkness, even though they can easily be observed going about their daily routines. Soil, plants and worms can also be added to the pods, creating a fascinating mini eco-system.

Can be used with UK ant species. Ants are available separately from Interplay UK.

Product Description

At G-branch we're always asking searching questions in the pursuit of product innovation. One such question (after a recent outbreak of ants in the G-canteen) was: Are ants pests? Our conclusion: No. Ants offer the average pet owner the same advantages as a hamster, dog, or pony. With this in mind, we are proud to introduce The Ant-o-Sphere - an ant habitat created for people bored with domestic pets. This unique system mimics the actual layout of leaf-cutter ant colonies in the tropics. The 4 spherical pods and the tubing that connects them together are life-size replicas of the chambers and passageways that these ants would normally construct underground, and are tinted red, so that the ants believe that they are in total darkness, even though they can easily be observed going about their daily routines. Soil, plants and worms can also be added to the pods, creating a fascinating mini eco-system.

4.0 out of 5 stars No fear Antosphere 13 Jan 2011
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought the 8 pod unit for my youngest son for Christmas. This is an excellent bit of kit which is quite sturdy when handled properly. It makes quite a tall colony and has plenty of room for different ant environments.

On the subject of getting ants for the colony I just used the enclosed voucher and ordered them online. You can order ants from many places.

Excellent product that I heartily recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ant Spheres 23 Jun 2011
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
A great toy, but perhaps one best suited to supervised learning. It's not something that if left with a young child is obvious fun, but if you spend time with your child and the toy, pointing things out and perhaps sharing discoveries and research, Ant Spheres can be endlessly fascinating and educational!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mmm Ant Farm 20 Jun 2011
By Tracey
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought the ant farm for our Grandsons but they both got very bored with it very quickly. It is quite hard to see the ants. When they are in the tubes you can see them but not to well in the spheres. To be totally fair i think for older children maybe 11 and upwards it would be more fun. You have to be very careful when its built as you dont want ants all over your house. On the plus side our ants did thrive very well in it. We just put the clear tub in the garden with a bit of cotton wool in it soaked it in sugary water and hey presto loads of ants in it a few hours later.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent product 2 July 2011

This is a decent product. My son loves all insects, so this is good for him to sit & watch & take care of.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
