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".

Nembrotha cristata

like most nudibranchs this species has no official common name. they can be found in tropical Indo-Western Pacific oceans. they grow up to 50mm in length and their body is black but their external organs are edged in a almost neon green like color. they are poisonous and get their poison from the stinging cells of fallen Cnidarians.
