Ants that can grow to the size of a human ear and some that can "live forever" by cloning themselves.
These are just two of the 23 species of ants on display from today at Singapore and Asia's first Ant Museum.
Over the past few months, an unassuming three-storey shophouse at 359 Upper Paya Lebar has been slowly transformed into a space dedicated to an insect most people deem a common household pest.
Helming the museum is its ant-crazy founder Zat Low.
The 36-year-old is known as the Antman of Singapore due to his expansive ant collection. He is also the founder of enthusiast group Singapore Ants.
The first floor of the shophouse mainly showcases Mr Low's art in the form of ant-related paintings and self-made formicariums, which are ant farms that house colonies.
Since falling in love with ant collecting five years ago, Mr Low has learnt to build formicariums from scratch, using mostly acrylic, glass and 3D printing.
He sells these to other collectors and frequently gives away smaller ones to children to help them kick-start their ant-collecting hobby.
On display on the second floor of the museum are colonies of different species of ants.
Mr Low rattles off the ants' scientific names and shares lesser-known facts about the ants, which are local species that he caught in forested areas here or got by trading with other local ant collectors.
His profound knowledge of ants and passion did not appear overnight - the start of his enthusiasm was a serendipitous one.
