Biology, Cosmology & Guitar

I did my university degree in biology (botanics, ecology) at the University Leipzig and have been working mainly for the Phyllodrom Rainforest Museum Leipzig since. I have declared myself a zoologist since I was a little boy, as soon as I was able to put on a snorkeling mask or spot snakes in the garden.

My heart is on the underwater life of the Croatian island Krk (Kvarner). In the last ten years I identified (and most likely also misidentified) more than 300 marine species around the island, and since 2016 I am taking pictures.

Thank you for your IDs and comments.

COMMENTS I frequently do not post:

"You should have left it in the ocean."
"Science is NOT a matter of opinion."
"Geneticists tell us we are chimps. Let's not forget that, it explains a lot."
"In the last centuries scientists killed everything they wanted to ID. This is typical human behaviour. But we can do better."
