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 Polioptilidae: A family of passerine birds commonly known as "Gnatcatchers". All gnatcatchers are native to the New World, being found in both North and South America. Gnatcatchers are close relatives of the wrens and some species are known as "Gnatwrens".

Striped Pyjama Squid

(Sepioloidea lineolata)

also known as the Striped Dumpling Squid, Despite it’s name it is actually a cuttlefish of the order (Sepiida). They are native to the Southern Indo-Pacific centered around Southern Australia. while it may look cute it is actually fairly poisonous, it is pretty small and grows up to 2 in in length. they tend to bury themselves in the sand where their heads are only visible probably for protection/hunting.
