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".

Cinnabar Moth

(Tyria jacobaeae)

is a species of moth in the family Arctiidae (Arctiid moths) that can be found in most parts of the world due to their effectiveness in controlling ragwort, although their native range is Europe and central Asia. The name cinnabar comes from the red patches on their wings which look like the mineral cinnabar. They are a normal sized moth with a wingspan of 30-40 mm long. these moths fly around during the day and are toxic (the red colors serve as a warning).
