Well, a lot of you remember the disaster that was last year's Blue Gel Ant Farm... [image=http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f166/Master--Kenobi/Obi-Wan/Ant_led_side.jpg] Really cool looking, but..due to me not realizing that "when the ants die, their little buddies will carry the bodies to the top of the gel and leave them there;" (quote from instrution book) THAT the instructions neglected to say that I had to REMOVE the "little dead bodies" otherwise they would rot and contaminate the farm. Welll, it was a distaster of 6" by 8" by 1" porportions...and just ..."EWWWWW" However, I decided to try it again and now, said new Blue Gel Ant Farm (minus the cool lighting thingy) is a part of my classroom and sits proudly on my desk. I waited a week before posting as I wanted to make sure that I didn't mess it up this time. So, original count..28 ants..survival count todate 27 ants as one did not survive the initial shipping. There is also one completely torked off ant, as I thought he was dead, but no..sleeping and really upset that he got woke up. So... Cool Blue Gel Ant Farm - $19.00 Pkg of 28 Harvester Ants - $4.00 Look on your kids faces....PRICELESS!!!
