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".

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).
