So you've managed to successfully colonise your insect race with the original Antworks, but you're looking for a new challenge - nocturnal ant civilisation! With the newly-illuminated version of the Antworks ant farm, you'll be able to see how your carefully-nurtured insect allies get on at night time, thanks to the cool blue light that emanates from it.

Just like the original, the non-toxic blue gel is a great place for ants to live. All you have to do to provide your 10-15 ants (kidnapped from the garden will do fine) with a comfortable and nutritious environment to thrive in is poke a few holes in it and let them run free. They'll soon create an amazing network of tunnels, and you'll be able to watch them go about their business even more clearly than before (bear in mind they probably won't be popping to the corner shop or running errands, mostly they just love a good burrow).

The blue illumination makes a beautiful accompaniment to the whole package, and lends an almost alien-like quality to any front room (not in the nerdy "my wife let me decorate the house like the Starship Enterprise" kind of way - this is much cooler). It's not only a great talking-point and fun way to see nature at work, it's also educational. Probably. Maybe. Well, it's got nature in it, it must be educational. Either way, it's an amazing piece that will have you captivated and staring at it like a slack-jawed entomologist.
