This is a follow up to my post about The Ant-Man Ant Farm by Uncle Milton Toys.
I was very happy to receive my ants very quickly! The website states it could take three to five weeks, but I was happy to get mine in about one. This may not always be the case, so please take that into consideration when you make your purchase.
The ants arrived in a padded envelope. Included was the blue tube which had the ants and some plant matter for their food, and the purple sheet of paper which had instructions. I tried to get a goodclose up of the ants, but they were pretty busy in their tube.
Following instructions, we placed the tube into the refrigerator for about fifteen minutes. This made them sleepy, so when we first placed them into the habitat they were a bit sluggish and didn't do very much, but at soon as they woke up they became quite industrious.
They have been building tunnels and moving sand to the upper area as well. It has been quite something to watch!
These are very independent pets and will only require a few drops of water now and then and an occasional crumb of food.
You can order yours from the Uncle Milton website or your favorite toy retailer. The suggested price is $14.99 and a code for ants is included.
