2 new versions of Ant Australia nests spotted in this video, the acrylic nest has a extra tank of water underneath, pretty nifty solution and about time!

That white nest she is in, doesn't look like Ytong or acrylic.... gypsum? Hydrostrone? ;)

I just watched that video this morning! I like Ant Invasions' videos, he's a pretty cool young bloke and his vids are improving all the time, he's gonna go far if he keeps it up. I didn't realise the products were new, it was good to see the outworld properly.

Here's a couple of vids I posted this morning for a closer look at the ant species.

I like that that out world has its entrance/exit to the nest coming out of the bottom of the container. Much nicer then the typical side entrance/exit

Yeah, I like that too, I wanted to get a good look at those outworlds and they look pretty good to me.
