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".

…a species of sea anemone that can be found on the rocky coasts of the United Kingdom, Western Europe and the Mediterranean. This anemone is highly adapted to its environment and can thrive in high temperatures and dryness, some have even been found in areas with low salt. They also possess a ring of blue tentacles called acrorhagi which are used to fight off other anemones that attempt to invade their space.
