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".

White-nosed Coati (Nasua narica)

Also known as the Pizote, Antoon or Tejon, the white-nosed coati is a species of carnivore related to raccoons found throughout Mexico, the Southern United States, Central America and Colombia. Like raccoons white-nosed coati are omnivores and will feed on small animals, fruit, insects, eggs and sometimes carrion. Unlike raccoons which are nocturnal coati are primarily diurnal and forage during the day and retire to the trees at night. While males are mainly solitary, females/immature males will form social groups that communicate via vocal signals.  During foraging times cubs are left with ‘babysitters’ and will often play-fight with each other.
