>>4417216Tell me about the tawny frogmouths
>>4417224They are a bit like the australian version of Potoos/Nightjars/Owlets, they are called frogmouths and occupy the stealthy camouflaged large mouth insect eating niche there, somewhat they are apparently all related despite being species, families and continents away !
>>4417263Lol you're an owlet.
>>4417267>mfw I get called an owlet
All these glorious birds and somehow no onions made with them
>>4417212How come they all look so goofy.
>>4418036Masters of camouflage
Why are the coolest animals always the most difficult to care for?
>>4418185Well for one you should look at the size of their mouth and their relative size, this is probably one of the thoughest little to medium sized bug eater out there, they have hot blood too so its constantly on for that insect feast, not a whole lot of humans can compete or even meet that criteria.Not only that but these guys live on the forest floor (for nightjars in the video, tawny frogmouths and potoos live in the forest canopy and try to pass themselves for tree stumps), they actively nest and rest there too and are mostly if not all nocturnal species (when it comes to owlets,nightjars, potoos, frogmouths).Its such a rare animal that its nocturnal and camouflaging habits have made it hard to gauge its conservation status for most of the species concerned.
>>4417679I fricked out when I noticed the second one
>>4418195cool, big fan of nightjars
>>4418195He's so cute but he thinks he's scary.
>>4417212more like poopoo
Did someone say pottos?
>>4420603No, we said potoos
>>4417224If I gave them irises, would they die?
Why is it all mouth and eyes?
>>4421821why are you all cock and balls?
>>4420603Lemuranon? Is that you?
>>4417652>when she just keeps talking
>>4425391Lemur? Lemur lemur
>>4417231Caution Alert CautionMissile *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP*Missile *BEEP*Caution Missile
I recently learned that these guys can see even when their eyes are closed. Pretty wild stuff.
>>4417212They're like the frogs of the avian world
>>4417231someone should put that fish back in the water
