YMMV / Tetrapod Zoology

  • Creator Worship: Tet Zoo being one of the most notable zoology blogs out there, this was inevitable.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Ground hornbills.
    • Other such Darkhorses include azdarchids, babirusa, crocodylians and potoos.
  • Genius Bonus: The April Fools' posts tend to have a lot of these.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In a 2008 post Naish commented on Gregory Paul naming a dinosaur genus Mantellisaurus, opining that Mantellodon would have been a better name. A few years later Paul actually named a different dinosaur genus Mantellodon.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Tapir attacks. Especially when one of the victims of said attacks chimed in with her firsthand account...
  • Squick: There have been posts on the genitals of turtles, ducks, porcupines, elephants...
    • Two-toed sloths climb into latrines and feed on feces and urine.
    • Great tits eat the brains of hibernating bats.
    • One of the comments to this post mentions a zoo accident involving an anteater pushing its long sticky tongue up its keeper's nose, and presumably into his sinuses.
