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

Spotted Garden Eel (Heteroconger hassi)

is a small species of conger eel found in shallowish Indo-Pacific waters. This species is widely known for its burrows, as large groups of up to a few thousand eels will burrow into the bottom of a reef or coral cluster and sit in their small sandy homes with their mouths pointed towards the current in the hopes of catching any zooplankton that may swim by.
