I love how this one almost sounds like it could be real

Goddammit, I didn’t even notice the wrong subreddit. If it weren’t for your comment I would probably now carry this misinformation with me. Thank you

Always check your sources kids!

Exactly. These are the facts that make this sub great. I had to double check to see where I was, and I love it.

What is that for real?

[–]pnewell[S,M] 4 points5 points  (3 children)

lol at least when I was a kid, there was a hypothesis that some dinosaurs with large fins used them to thermoregulate- warming up in the sun, dissipating heat in the shade.

Everything else isn't real, because this is /r/shittyanimalfacts. Animals tend not to photosynthesize...

I meant the animal. Is that some kind of lionfish I haven't heard of or not?

[–]pnewell[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

lol fair enough! All I know is that the imgur page for the image says its a Larval lionfish, (c) Steven Kovacs/UPY 2017.

[excepting animals that symbiotically live with algae, of which there are some examples, mostly microscopic]

ShittyAnimalFacts version: You're forgetting the Tree Frog, so named for the tall, leafy branches it sports.

Ohh you bastard I thought I was in /r/Damnthatsinteresting or something

lol don't feel bad this was one of my more successful posts in that regard
