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".

Children’s Stick Insect (Tropidoderus childrenii)
….a species of stick insect that is native to Australia. Like most phasmids they feed elusively on plant material and seemingly have a preference for eucalyptus. Like several other species of stick insect female children’s stick insects are capable of reproducing parthogenically and eggs are typically laid in the ‘winter’ and will hatch in late summer.
