Holidays or visits abroad bring new opportunities to observe nature, and to look for species you might not find at home. Tell us about the interesting creatures you discover outside the UK. Just post a photo with information about when and where in the world you took it.
Our Museum experts may be able to help you identify your find. They specialise in identifying UK species but will also have a go at identifying foreign finds. There are also many naturalists outside the Museum who follow these forums and may be able to help too.
We are scientists who run the Museum's Identification and Advisory Service.
Our special interests include fossils, rocks, plants, insects and other creatures and we are dedicated to answering your natural history questions.
