N got an ant farm for Christmas and we have been waiting patiently/procrastinating about ordering the ants. I thought for sure they would take the full 4-6 weeks to arrive but shockingly they arrived quite quickly. I think it was less than 3 weeks! We got the habitat all set up and I dumped the ants in. They seemed somewhat sleepy and bored in the test tube but once they got into the habitat I realized they must have been hungry/thirsty since they all seemed to dive into the gel and start eating/drinking. I’m sure they’ll be a lot of fun to watch and we have set up some really specific rules about not opening the container and such so things should be fine. But honestly they give me the creeps!
