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 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

                        It makes me feel better knowing that even the best (you) have to reinvigorate garden designs, that some things don't do well, others do great, but always there is maintenance. Love your channel. Hope you have a very merry Christmas, I look forward to the treat you give the ant kingdoms for Christmas.

                          Thank you! Yes, all terrariums need maintenance! There's no escaping it. Sometimes a terrarium will grow more beautiful over time but it will always eventually become to overgrown!

                                              Mikey never maintains his vivariums; they're super nice when he makes 'em, then he leaves them to rot into a wild overgrown jungle, then he essentially guts the place and gives it a makeover. Rinse and repeat. It happens to ALL the vivariums/palladariums. Some great shots in the recent AC episodes; the new team is paying off!

YouTube is going to be changing a lot starting in January and a ton of notifications are going to be changed because some parents don't watch what their kids are watching and have complained when they see things they don't think the kid should be watching and that's somehow up to other people to keep an eye on which is stupid. So yeah not always the notification issue but an issue with the system trying to keep on top of an issue that wouldn't be there if people actually parented their kids rather then expecting society to do it for them.
