Saw this in a magazine on a page listing "hot stuff"...<br><br><br><br>
I know kids are fascinated by ants... but isn't the general idea that they should be taught to observe animals in the natural habitat and not disturb them or interfere with them ?!

I guess so, it just wasn't my sort of thing when I was a kid... and I am definitely not going to give this to my daughter ! I also saw plexiglass shoes with - live - spiders in the transparent heels... very icky !

Here you go... PIC ! (the pic I saw came with a website where you can purchase the shoes, haven't got the reference here with me though)...<br><br><br><br>
But if it were live, wouldn't the spider die... ? I guess it's not real then, they just make believe it is ??<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/2/24/24e85369_vbattach5089.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/2/24/525x525px-LL-24e85369_vbattach5089.jpeg" style="width:438px;height:525px;"></a>

It's definitely nothing new, but it looks weird. Gel? How are they supposed to borrow and make tunnels in gel? Apparently it's also food for them.

hmmm.... yeah the antquariums are just an updated version of normal ant farms, but the shoes I haven't seen before. However, I seriously doubt that they're real spiders.... because as you pointed out, it would die.... minor problem. haha<br><br>
No oxygen and no food... hmmm yeah

I think that particular one may be a joke, but Im fairly sure similar things do exist. Theyre for very rich people who can just throw them away when the animal dies.

you mean EVIL rich people.<br><br><br><br>
but i also read shoes like that that have a little door on top of the heel part so you can feed them. But still, its realy mean to force an animal into such a tiny compartment.
