Hi, I'm Andrew and I’m just a simple 19 year old guy and zoology student that posts random factoids about obscure animals and general animal science/zoology/biology stuff so if you like animals this is the place for you, if you only like cute animals this is not the place for you… Also I can ID any animals you might need identified (just submit them to me).
Disclamer: none of the pictures are mine unless stated
Family Melanotaeniidae: A family of Atheriniform fish commonly known as rainbowfish. Rainbowfish are native to Australia, New Guinea and surrounding islands. They tend to inhabit a wide range of freshwater habitats and will feed on small invertebrates and algae.

I have these two types of spiders I cannot idenify since I’m a huge ninny with looking at spiders… If there is anyway you could please idenify them I would be greatly appreciated!
I can’t quite make out the first one since its pretty blurry, If I were to take a blind guess I’d say it might be a Tetragnatha sp. but that’s a guess. The second one looks like a male Hentzia palmarum, a species of jumping spider.
