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.

Raven Fencing
science of play in birds
It is not unknown that corvids use tools for hunting grubs and other invertebrates lodged in trees. But you may not know that they are incredibly playful birds as well. as young ravens will break off twigs, bark and other objects and will play fight other ravens with them. the two birds will “joust” at each other and clack the objects together, as if they were kids playing in a yard.
