The amazing world of taxidermy
As ant keeping enthusiasts we obviously prefer our ants alive but there's no denying the beauty that is taxidermy.
Alex Manning aka pyriformis over on Instagram is our favourite taxidermist. A quick look through his photos and you'll be amazed by the process he uses and the end results.
Whilst he covers most insects, we obviously love the ants he's working on. In the photo's above you can see some Myrmecia, Eciton, and Camponotus sp.
His favourite ant is Myrmecia and he's hoping to one day find all species for his collection. Maybe even finding one that's undiscovered.
Be sure to check out his Instagram page for all of his work. You won't regret it.
