DOES NOT INCLUDE ANTS
Comes with a test tube, which is the easiest and the most common way to keep ants.
A flat insert, either grouted or ungrouted, is provided as a living area for the ants. The benefits of this are that it reduces the slippiness of the glass and helps cocoon spinning species to reproduce. Generally, grouted inserts are better than ungrouted inserts.
A test tube black shield is included, it will easily slide on to the tube, and will block light from entering so ants can stay calm.
A feeding insert which is used to provide food to the colony without having ants escape.
Test tube holders provide a way to secure the test tube in an easily observable area and prevent the test tube from rolling around.
