About The Author

Fact Animal is authored by Dan Sharp, a UK based animal expert, enthusiast and researcher, with a unquenchable thirst for animal facts.

Dan Sharp of Fact Animal

Dan grew up dreaming of becoming a vet or zoologist, but unfortunately ended up in marketing (!). However, Dan now spends much of his time, reading, researching and writing about animals for many publications throughout the world, including Fact Animal.

Fact Animal was created for his love of animals, and overwhelming desire to share astonishing animal facts and tidbits with others – as well as his frustration of seeing common myths, recited over and over as true.

Dan loves to travel the globe to see weird, wonderful and rare species in their own habitats. If you’d like to get in touch, then please use our contact form.
