    Most of the content about zoology and animals made by independent creators is in text format like blogs.So what are some of your favourites on social media, like YouTube, Facebook,Tik Tok,etc?

    A certain Chandler's Wildlife produces some interesting content. Kamp Keenan is decent as well. They are reptiles keepers who work with some very interesting species. There are many fish and herptile relatives channels out there, and as always, you will find hidden gems (so to speak) in zoology related topics.

    Some of my favourites are Textbook travel,he has made a couple of videos about the taxonomy of various animal familys and orders like ungulates,crocodilians,musteloidea,felidae and marsupials.
    Some of the videos made by a youtuber called tsuki are really intresting, the majority of them about invasive species. A man on tiktok called Mndiaye_97 is really talented and charismatic, he knows what he's talking about and clearly has more than avrage knowledge about zoology.One reason that makes him so special is that he uses comedy and "dumbs down" his language,which proably makes people who maybe aren't very interested in animals to learn more and maybe become a little more interested.

    Of course we can't have a thread like this without mentioning @Moebelle and his wonderful Youtube channel, Zoo Tours. Being from Australia, i've never had the chance to visit zoos in the US so watching the 'tours' gives me a great idea of the specific area and its collection. The videos are also very educational, with a lot of interesting facts about the specific species. A really well done Youtube channel overall.

    Are it two different guys who narrate in the zootours videos? The voice sounds different depending on the date of the video.

    No, it's just a different mic I believe.

    You would be correct! I went from shouting into my computer's built in sound system to a halfway decent microphone. I can also say that my voice finally matured.

    @Jambo Thank you for the kind words!
