Small wonders: Asia’s first Ant Museum in Singapore
Dated: 19 March 2020

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.

Encouraged by the response to an educational exhibition he organised late last year, he decided to create a permanent ant museum. The ant museum allows them to learn about various ant behaviours. It also offers two-hour guided tours.

Singapore opens its first Ants Museum, and it’s fascinating

Dated: 18 March 2020

If the second floor of the museum showcased the variety of local ant species, the first floor showed off the creativity of local ant-keepers.

Large ant-themed paintings lined the walls, and ornate formicariums made using precious stones and gold made the place look more like an art gallery.

After the tour, I got the chance to talk to Zat Low, 36, the founder of the Ants Museum. He asked me about my colonies (he gave me advice and test tubes to start my first colony years ago), and shared about his hopes for the hobby and community.

Considered as pests in general, ants are one of the most misunderstood species. Social, resilient and hardworking, ants and humans share many common traits. From delegation of tasks in colonies to their peculiar way of paying taxes through sharing the contents of ‘social stomachs’, parallels can be drawn between their behavioural patterns to that of us, humans. Hence, there is much to be learnt from these tiny beings who together weigh as much as all humans combined.

“Ants they are very small, nobody really gives a sh*t about them. But if you really observe an ant colony, you are able to memorize every single ant behaviour. They are different, just like us.”
