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

Bathykorus bouilloni
…is a species of Aeginid hydrozoan that is the sole member of the genus Bathykorus. Bathykorus bouilloni is native to the Arctic Ocean and is most common around Greenland and northern Canada. B. bouilloni is a deep water species and is found in waters ranging from 800 to 2,500 m (2,600 to 8,200 ft). Because of this ‘extreme’ habitat it is difficult to study and much is still unknown about its biology and ecology.
