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".

Wasp Moth (Syntomoides imaon)

…a species of arctiid moth found throughout India, Sri Lanka, and parts of Asia and Indonesia. Noted for the transparent patchs on its wings and its  yellow-black coloration which is strangely similar to that of a wasp. Not much is known about this moth’s biology or ecology, however its larvae are known to feed on plants of the genera Citrus and Anacardium.
