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

Thier closest relatives are know truly known but they are thought to be close to hook-tip and geometer moths.

    I like nemertine worms, just because it’s nice to see creepy gross worms who are more interested in stabbing things to...
