We have yet to figure out why our ants have barely responded to their new, clearly amazing, NASA-inspired space-age habitat. I mean, c’mon, if someone plucked you out of your normal world and threw you into this retro, psychedelic blue-goop abyss, wouldn’t you want to tunnel like crazy?
According to the directions, our ants should start tunnelling extensively within a few days….something like this. It’s been two weeks though. They’ve barely made progress. I’m convinced they’re depressed, that or lazy. I can’t decide whether to feel guilty or ripped off.
We’ll give it another week. Failing that, we’ll have to order some harvester ants in the mail.
