CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Lets children explore the world of ants and other critters in a fun, easy way! View larger.
With its multiple pods and support system, the Ant-O-Sphere lets your child explore the world of ants and other critters, such as earth worms, in a safe and easy way. By cutting the included red tubing, you and your child can create winding walkways or quick thruways between each of the eight pods.
Four suction cups allow users to stick one of the pods to a mirror or window, providing the option for a "sky pod." More cases can be attached for larger sky colonies--but take care not to leave your ants in direct sunlight.
Unique Pod Design and Color System
The Ant-O-Sphere uses a system of clear and red-colored pods to simulate an "above" and "underground" sensation for the ants, who relate red light to darkness. You can see them--but they won't be able to see you. For every pod, the upper half contains necessary ventilation holes, as well as a three-wall design that allows the ants to crawl suspended above the bottom half's contents.
Magnifying lenses point at each corner so you can get a close-up look at how the pod's occupants are doing. The walls mimic real underground ant chambers, making it easier for your little friends to enjoy their new home.
Experiment with Different Critters and Environments
Along with its included bag of play-sand, the Ant-O-Sphere offers numerous ways for users to create new environments for their ants. The colorfully illustrated instruction booklet provides over half a dozen ideas on new housing methods, depending on what type of animal you're caring for. Remember to take great consideration before changing the pod contents--what works for red ants might not work for earth worms.
What's in the Box
Wild! Science Ant-O-Sphere with pipette, tube, play-sand, cotton wool, 8 molded pods, legs, baseplates, tweezers, O rings and plugs, suckers, feed containers, and an instruction booklet.
Top Customer Reviews
There were a few things I have even already learned myself, however a few of them would have been nice to know when *assembling* the pods. Most of it has to do with how the ants behave and adapt to the pods, not so much the fault of the Wild Science Ant-O-Sphere kit... however it would have still been nice of them to include in the "TIPS" section.
Being winter in Wisconsin, ants are also in rare supply so I actually bought ants online. Western Harvester ants are actually quite cheap and easy to order online, as they are food for the horned lizard, and ordered 50 ants for $6.95 (shipped) from antsalive.com. (Make sure you read my notes at the bottom if you decide to go this route). They have had been in the ant-o-spheres for about three days, at this moment. I'll update if anything else comes up.
First of all, it seems that harvester ants are not great climbers.Read more ›

It is a fun and exciting design, but flimsy. After it has been set up for a while and you try to pull off the tubes to add more soil etc. Read morePublished on September 28, 2012 by heiden
