So here is a little bit about myself I would like to share here.

  • My name is Eli T., and if you know me, then great, but for those who do not, I am a Junior college student currently aiming high for a degree. I will be graduating with a Biology degree and my plans are simple: I would love to gain a Master's and possibly later on a Ph.D. in microbial research. Now I love iNaturalist because of its expansive collection of research-grade material and its opportunity to discover new species and map existing species' distribution more particularly endangered and introduced.


  • Ps. This site can grow into a protozoans, fossil, and virus identification site as well if more people work on posting or identifying those specimens.
  • Cameras used

    Main: Olympus TG-6
    Side: iPhone 11
    Underwater: GoPro Hero 6
