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".

Mission Golden-eyed Tree Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix)

Also known as the blue or Amazon milk frog, the mission golden-eyed tree frog is a large species of tree frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America. This species gets the name ‘milk frog’ because when stressed the frog will excrete a milky fluid from its pores. The milk frog like other tree frog frequents humid rainforests, usually in vegetation or near moving water. Like most frogs the milk frogs diet consists of insects and small arthropods. They have also been introduced into the pet trade as they are relatively easy to care for.
