    11/23 UPDATE: Terra kits are now self-fillable! Orders outside the continental USA will receive an empty slide with tools and instructions for collecting and preparing your own soil samples. Orders within the continental USA will still receive a pre-prepared slide with 10,000+ microorganisms, but now with the option to empty and refill using your own samples! Watch the full video update here.


    It's Not a Video Game, It's Real Life

    It's Not a Video Game, It's Real Life

    We believe exploring the small and unseen helps solve the world's biggest problems.

    A World at Your Fingertips

    Micro Safari Terra is a microbiological habitat - like an ant farm, but for entire eco-systems of microscopic creatures!

    Each slide comes pre-filled with a fresh soil sample, teaming with tens of thousands of microorganisms. Use the included Mobile Microscope to view your little buddies on a phone or tablet, and keep them fed and watered using the corner ports. Watch as they grow, eat each other, reproduce, and respond to changes in their system!

The mobile microscope will work with any device where the center of the camera is less than 23mm (0.90in) from an edge of the device, and the device has a thickness between 7mm (0.275in) and 12mm (0.472in).
