I Created a Pineapple Beach Vivarium for Ants | Super Relaxing Video

  • Published: 30 November 2019
  • I created one of the most unique and exotic tanks I've ever made in my life for my beloved trap-jaw ant colony (Odontomachus simillimus) called the Jawbreakers. Join me as we explore the new world we created for my trap-jaw ants, as well as those of our other ant colonies in my Ant Room (the 'Antiverse'). Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #TrapjawAnts #Pineapple #Beach

    I personally think it's lacking arboreal creatures with all the new plants... it has plenty of aquatic lifewith the shrimp, fish, plus terrestrial with the trap jaws and crabs but arboreal seems unfulfilled biome opportunity

                                In response to you saying “life finds a way” the person who said it if my memory is correct gets eaten later in it so his life does not follow that rule but generally yes it does so take as you will. So that thought gave me a little chuckle. I just thought to bring it up

                                            I really like it, but the pineapples just aren’t doing it for me, they stand out way to much which pretty much only makes me focus on them, this means I can’t see all the other beautiful architecture because I’m focusing on only one thing

                                                So basicly your saying that we need to put the ants in a tank with stores, garbage men, doctors, and the internet?

                                                  Pretty much. The mites act like doctors, the trees are internet and the worms are garbage men.
