The module is an integral part of the entire ant farm - the formicarium. It serves as a home for the ants. Inside each module there are corridors and chambers where the ants live, rest, and care for new individuals. It is also the place where the queen
herself is found, and she can be in peace and safety. That's why each module is equipped with a red lid to dim the light and simulate the environment of a real anthill.
* Ants are not included.
* The product is compatible with the previous version. :)
