Not wanting to fill my sons' christmas with just toys I bought him this ant farm and hoped he'd like it.
Well, not only does HE love it, but the whole family gather round it daily to check out the ants progress. For 2 days after we put the ants in there was not much going on, but on day 3 they started tunneling and now there is an entire network of cleverly made tunnels, and you can watch them making the tunnels. The light feature is brilliant for close examination of the ants but we've found that the ants prefer to work with the light off - so I wouldn't recommend keeping the light on all day. The harvester ants that we ordered have really big jaws and they chew away the gel and then take it away to be deposited above ground. It's the most fascinating thing, watching them create an environment for themselves. I HIGHLY recommend this ant farm to anyone whose child (or parents!) is interested in bugs of any sort. These ants are truly remarkable!
