The people who research, write and produce QI (Quite Interesting), a British comedy television game show which tests obscure facts, posted an extremely popular AMA on Reddit. This was followed up by sharing a series of fascinating facts about animals as animated gifs. The animated gifs were created by artistMichael Whaite.
This cute and funny fellow is the potoo bird. Potoos are native to Central and South America. During the day, they sit perched upright on a tree stump which acts as the perfect camouflage. When hunting, they will sit and wait for their insect prey to fly by. After catching it, potoos will return to the same perch. Being nocturnal, they display the same behavior at night.
With their large sloping beaks and enormous eyes, potoo birds look like adorable cartoon characters. Their expressions are priceless and they seem to have quite a few of them — comical, sad, pouting, and frightened. Potoos are most definitely cool creatures.
