Common names vs. scientific names
Why are common names not as useful as scientific names? Well they can vary by location. And language. And...they may be completely inaccurate. Like this one---the Giant Danger Guppy. :D

How do I navigate through the comics?
Comics are shown 3 at a time. Click "Previous" at bottom left of the last comic shown to see more OR search by topic by clicking on a topic underneath this Q&A box! Even when searching by topic, comics are still shown 3 at a time, so don't forget to click "previous" at bottom left of the last comic shown to see all comics for that topic.
Can I use your comics in my presentation or on social media?
You also have a webtoon?
Yes, it's still pretty new! We'd love it if you'd subscribe! Here's our Paramecium Parlor webtoon and here's our Amoeba Sisters Sisterhood webtoon.
Are any of these comics ever animated?
You mean like a GIF? We have GIFs that are very similar to how our comics are styled! Check out our GIF page!
Can I find these comics on merchandise (like shirts, posters, mugs, etc)?
We're so glad you asked! Our art is licensed to be on items in our Redbubble "store." Redbubble manufactures, sells, and ships items with our art on them. We make a percent margin on each order. Thank you for your support!
*Remember all comics are shown 3 at a time! Please click PREVIOUS at bottom of page to keep viewing.*
