Anyway, Animal A Day is a project I started back in 2010 because I love to read, learn, and discover cool new things about all kinds of animals. And why not share all those fun facts with others?
My educational background is in early medieval art and history, but biology and zoology have interested me for as long as I can remember. I am recently completed my Masters in Library and Information Science, and work as a Librarian, which definitely helps when doing some of this research. (And is great for the Interlibrary Loan account!)
I personally am I fan of sorts of different animals, and I really tried to come up with a top 5 list and it just didn't work. But as a consolation I can give you my top 5 birds...
- Whooping Crane
- Tawny Frogmouth
- Double Wattled (Southern) Cassowary
- Victoria Crowned Pigeon
Animal Photography is a growing hobby of mine, so I'm trying to use as many of my own images as possible (and eventually going back to update some older entries). Pictures by me usually don't have a link in the caption, and are taken with either a Canon Rebel EOS T2i, a Fujifilm Finepix S2700HD, or my junky HTC Evo cellphone, depending on what was on me at the time!
When it is not possible for me to use my own images, I provide a link back to the location where I found the picture. If you have any questions or concerns about any of the images posted, please contact me at lauren @ animal-a-day.com.
