40 Sad Animal-Fact Comics By Brooke Barker, How Many Of Them Do You Know?

There are many things about mother Nature that stay unknown to us, humans. And the Animal Kingdom, as a part of Nature, holds various surprising facts for us to discover. That’s why many people have an interest in animals. Some love to do it as a hobby, others choose to spend their whole life studying these creatures and gaining some new knowledge they’ve never heard about them. Well, for Brooke Barker the comic artist, she studies animals because of both reasons. With huge love for animals, the artist is inspired to spend more time on them, searching for new facts and getting excited about what she’s found out.

Barker decides to share what she learned through the comic series “Sad animals facts”, which is such an informative channel to any animal person. Her drawings are so adorable, and the animals (even scary ones) are made to be cuter and friendlier. On her Instagram followed by 440K people, the artist constantly updates hundreds of posts giving sad animal facts, and here are forty of them.
