Ant keeping allows you to observe behaviors within ants which would otherwise go unnoticed. In a formicarium (ant farm) you have the privilege of clearly seeing all the happenings within the ants’ nest. Studying the intricate, systematic behaviors of these ants, and watching their colonies grow over time, can be an incredibly rewarding and insightful experience. 

If this interests you, we highly recommend watching our ant keeping introductory video below which covers the subject in greater depth.

What is it about the ant way of life that has stood the test of time so well? All ants belong to extended families, and carry their prey home to share. Unselfishness is the rule. Everything they do is for their colony’s good.
