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 Callidulidae: An unusual family of moths known as "Old World Butterfly-moths. Callidulids are a family of butterfly like moths which are distributed throughout southeast Asia and Oceania. Callidulids can exhibit both day and night flying behavior and typically hold their wings over thier backs like butterflies. Thier closest relatives are know truly known but they are thought to be close to hook-tip and geometer moths.

Chiropsoides quadrigatus
…a small species of ‘box jellyfish’ that is widely distributed throughout the Indo-Pacific, Western Atlantic and likely parts of the Indian Ocean. Like other cubozoans this species has a potent sting which is very painful and can lead to cardiac arrest in humans. In the wild they use that powerful venom to quickly disable and eat fast-swimming fish.
