    • Arena
    • 1 of 6
  • The Arena is a simulation of the real outer world for ants where they scout for food and water. You can place insects, fruits, water and other food and liquids inside the arena where the ants will find it and bring it back home – into the module. If needed, a test tube can be placed inside, as well as various decorations creating a real natural environment for your colony.

    The arena is built in a way that provides the easiest possible maintenance and clear viewing, while using the best materials available. The hexagonal white plastic box together with a hexagonal transparent wall is the fundamental part of the ant nest. Then there is a transparent lid with hexagonal hole in the middle through which you can put food and water into the arena. The gray cover with super-tiny air holes is attached to the arena by magnets and prevents the ants from escaping. Even the transparent lid with the hole in the middle can be removed, if needed.

     Each arena comes with six white plugs to seal the holes on the sides and four clips to connect the arenas and modules together.

    Technical parameters:

    Hole diameter: 8 mm
    Height: 60 mm
    Outer side to side: 120 mm

    • Module
    • New
  • The module is the home for your ants where they live, sleep, eat and protect themselves. It is also the part of the nest where the queen stays and lays new eggs. It basically simulates the underground chambers dug in the soil in nature.

    The module is made only out of the best quality materials, keeping ease of maintenance and durability in mind. The hexagonal white plastic box with six holes is a fundamental part of the ant nest. Then there is the transparent plexiglass through which you can watch the ants and a removable red cover whose position is secured by magnets. Inside there is a cork desk, providing natural environment for ants and keeping the right amount of humidity inside the nest. The water can be easily added through the holes on the sides. The cork desk can be replaced if needed.

     Each module comes with six white plugs to seal the holes on the sides and four clips to connect the arenas and modules together.

    Technical parameters:

    Chamber depth: 10 mm
    Hole diameter: 8 mm
    Total depth: 20 mm
    Outer side to side: 120 mm

  • About HappyAnt

    The hidden world of ants is fascinating and still has many secrets. Ant keeping is great for every curious human being who loves nature and life.

    In HappyAnt we want to share this passion with as many people as possible, and we believe that offering an ant nest (formicarium) that can be easily maintained, has an intuitive use and elegant design, will make this possible.

    In 2015 we came up with the revolutionary idea of a modular ant nest and since that moment we are working hard on improving the concept and pushing the limits of ant keeping.

    Join us on this amazing journey and have fun with ant keeping!
