They might not be the most conventional of pets, but an ant colony can provide a fun — and educational — feature in your home!

Join Chela as the gift of ants is given just in time for Christmas, thanks to Tar Heel Ants. As much time as so many people spend trying to get ants out of their home, the idea of keeping them inside for fun may seem a little strange. But ant colonies are endlessly fascinating, and the animals inside are incredible little creatures! As she explores in-home ant colony options, Chela learns a great deal about ants — the care and feeding of the little critters, what their daily life is like, their social habits and more… all on a deadline as she prepares a special Christmas gift for her mom!
