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

                                  19:20 That permaculture speech regarding the interconnected mutually beneficial relationship between organisms within a community was outstanding. Thank you for the informational and refined videos they are a delicacy, no doubt. I came for the quality footage of the superworm being eaten.

                                                I heard that for some reason YouTube is only alerting subscribers 3 times and not more than that. Idk if it's true or just a bug.

                                                      I would try anoles. theyre small, but may est the ants, but I also dont think they eat smaller creatures smaller then crickets, and the anoles are fun and easy lizards to keep, they come in many colors and the males have brightly colored dulaps and amazing, and I've had many in the past and I've experimented with them in a few palladariums and vivariums myself

Love your channel. Hope you have a very merry Christmas, I look forward to the treat you give the ant kingdoms for Christmas.

Rinse and repeat. It happens to ALL the vivariums/palladariums. Some great shots in the recent AC episodes; the new team is paying off!
