As a part of #The100DayProject, Oregon-based illustrator Brooke Barker is creating ‘Sad Animal Facts.’ The Instagram account features cute illustrations of strange and slightly depressing facts about animals, updated daily. Each fact features speech bubble commentary from said animal. For example, did you know if you cut off a snail’s eye it will grow back? Now that’s both amusing and educational.
If you have an animal fact you would like to contribute to the project, you can share it with Brooke here. Check out the amusing facts below, and follow @sadanimalfacts on Instagram for more drawn sad animals.
