Hello, I'm Alex Riley
I graduated with a Masters in Zoology last year which incorporated a myriad of topics including palaeontology, animal behaviour, ecology, and developmental biology. The latter formed my final year project where I investigated tooth replacement in Tetraodontiformes - a peculiar group of fish that includes pufferfish (Fugu; "poison, poison, tasty fish").
Throughout this time I've been writing about what animals get up to when researchers are bothering them and other biology related topics. I'm also waiting for George R.R. Martin to hurry up and release a new book.
I enjoy a cup of tea and a good sit.
