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 Grallariidae: A family of passerine birds commonly known as antpittas. And pittas are native to Central and South America and are related to antbirds and gnateaters. Like the unrelated pittas antpittas spend most of their lives on the ground and many specialize in eating ants. They possess long, powerful legs which give them an upright posture and an essentially vestigal vestigial which aid them in life on the ground.
