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 Callidulidae: An unusual family of moths known as "Old World Butterfly-moths. Callidulids are a family of butterfly like moths which are distributed throughout southeast Asia and Oceania. Callidulids can exhibit both day and night flying behavior and typically hold their wings over thier backs like butterflies. Thier closest relatives are know truly known but they are thought to be close to hook-tip and geometer moths.

Beipiaosaurus inexpectus
Was a dinosaur of the superfamily Therizinosauroidea that lived in the early Cretaceous period in china. B. inexpectus was large (probably because it was a dinosaur) growing up to 7 ft long, another interesting feature about this dinosaur was that it was feathered and had a toothless beak making it one of the largest known dinosaurs to be feathered (Yutyrannus being the largest).
