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".

Family Dorididae

Sea Lemons

The family Dorididae is a group of dorid nudibranchs found in tropical waters worldwide. They get the name sea lemon due to several species which have bright yellow coloration and a shape which makes them look almost like a lemon, however not all species are yellow and can range in color from white to orange. Like all nudibranchs they have two rhinophores on the top of their head, these are used for chemoreception. Also like most nudibranchs the sea lemon feeds on sessile animals like sponges and cnidarians.
