    My pet carpenter ants have disappeared for over six months and it has started to worry me. So this week, I actually went in and attempted to dig them out from beneath their resident rock in their ant terrarium called the Grove. I wanted to move them into a more effective ant farm setup where we could actually see the ants. What I discovered shocked me... twice! Hope you enjoy this week's unpredictable episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    The plants appearing in this episode are Peperomia pellucida (the plant with profuse pods) and Pilea microphylla (the attractive shrub).

I am so amazed and didnt expect that its possible to keep ants as a pet... I want to get my pet ants soon but I'm still worried if I'm worth of keeping them.
