If you love animals as much as I do you'll love this blog! Every day is a new category of animals. Starting at midnight the category changes. The categories range from areas in the world to different types of animals as well. It will always start off with a fact about the animals in that category and then be followed by images, more facts, and also stories, new events, advice and more. You can also submit photos and information as well!

A FACT ABOUT AMAZON RAINFOREST ANIMALS ; the fishing bat is the only type of bat that knows how to go fishing, as far as scientists currently know. It senses the ripples on the surface of the water using sonar and then dives down, snatching up its feast, and flying off into the night with barely a sound. | animal blog | photo by Christian Ziegler

A FACT ABOUT AMAZON RAINFOREST ANIMALS:the largest ant in the world lives in the Amazon rainforest and is dubbed the bullet ant. It’s a rather menacing name and for good reasons too! Not only does this ant grow to 1.2 inches in length, but it also has an extremely powerful and painful bite that you most definitely want to avoid at all costs possible! It’s said the pain will last for a full twenty-four hours. And yet a tribe in the rainforest uses this horror movie worthy ant in a coming-of-age ritual. The Satere-Mawe tribe in the Amazon rainforest creates a type of glove or basket and fills it with a swarm of bullet ants. If you don’t believe me on the intense pain, these tiny creatures score number one on the SSPI (Schmidt Sting Pain Index), a scale created by Justin Schmidt that rates the pain caused by different Hymenopteran stings. It’s said that it’s so painful it feels like you’ve been shot by a gun… Ouch! The tribe elders go into the jungle and drug the ants, then place them into the glove. After a little while the drug wears off and the ants become highly agitated. The child then puts his hands into the gloves and can not remove them for ten whole minutes. It’s said it feels like ones flesh is on fire. But the worst part of the pain comes as the gloves are removed, because then the venom is working. The hands become so swollen they look like stumps and are completely useless. But the child sometimes has to do this as many as twenty times because they are not considered a man until they manage to do this ritual without shedding a single tear… Feel like your body is on fire and that you’re getting shot by a gun but you can’t cry? I say it again.. Ouch! If you’re a man, you should be insanely thankful that you’re sitting there reading this and are not one of these tribal members.

A FACT ABOUT SOUTH AMERICAN ANIMALS: many animals have adapted to live in the rainforests in South America, such as the jaguar, that scientists believe have recently learned to swim in order to hunt not only on land but also in the plentiful amounts of water found here.
