ThinkGeek AntWorks Colors of Life Review and Giveaway


Product to Review: Think Geek - AntWorks Colors of Life
Product Information Ants are fascinating creatures. Sure you hate to see them in your socks or making a B-line for that pizza crust crumb you forgot to sweep up, but let's give credit where credit is due. Ants are amazing. Ants can lift up to 50x their body weight! They have two stomachs and three eyes! They also have uncanny communication skills and amazing abilities to work together to achieve a common goal.
This miraculous gel, derived from a NASA Space experiment, serves as both habitat and nutrition for your ants - allowing you to watch in awe as they turn a brick of aqua-blue gel into a fascinating colony of tunnels. Never before have you been so capable of watching these awesome creatures at work. And never before have you been able to help them party down. The LEDs in the base change from one color to the next (or you can pause it on your favorite color).
Consider Ants a pest? Think again. As Sun Tzu stated, 'Know Thy Enemy'. And what better way to know them then in this totally enclosed space age aquarium. Ants are perhaps the most populous creatures on the face of planet earth, with at least ten thousand species and countless trillions of individual ants. Bring them indoors today with AntWorks!

I took this one in the dark!
AntWorks - Space Age Ant Habitat
  • AntWorks is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity.
  • Unique, color-change LED base with different modes:
  • Off (for ant "bed time")
  • Cycle - goes through all the colors blending from one to the next.
  • Color Pause - holds your favorite color (until you change your mind).
  • The AntWorks Gel (Non Toxic) is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony.
  • Watch ants live, work, and tunnel in the nutritious and non-toxic gel as they create series upon series of intricate tunnels.

Includes:
  • Case and gel
  • Magnifying glass
  • Color-changing LED base
  • A/C adaptor
  • Instruction Booklet with facts about ants and color
  • ANTS ARE NOT INCLUDED! However, there is a form included where you can order some ants for delivery via mail. But why bother? Just set out some potato chips in the kitchen and voila! Instant ant colony! lol
This was taken in the dark also!

 Buy Now for $39.99

My Opinion: My grandsons love their Think Geek AntWorks Colors of Life Habitat! Of course, they disagree on what color to keep it on, so we just let it change automatically. They had to wait a day and half for the ants to start tunneling(new enviroment for the ants or we just had ants with attitudes)! They take the magnifying glass to watch them "talk" with their antennaes.
They have learned many new facts with their AntWorks Habitat:
  • All ants are females. Males are only created when they are needed by the colony to reproduce(about 1ce a year) and shortly die after mating.
  • Ants carry up to 50 times their weight! (If humans could do this, the 98 lb. weakling could still lift nearly 2 and 1/2 tons!
  • Ants outnumber us 1,666,666 to 1.
  • Each ant colony has it's own scent.
  • Ants need very little oxygen because they have no lungs.
  • Ants live only 1-3 months
I just love the products at Think Geek! My grandsons are learning more and more everyday.

One (1) of my very lucky readers will win an AntWorks Colors of Life Habitat for their little Myrmecologist(one who studies ants). Yeah, I didn't know that either lol.
