About Us

Hey there, and welcome to Floofmania.

Floofmania is an online magazine about all things floofy. If that demands any elaboration, it’s basically a publication about animals, big and small, but mostly about the wildlife that you can find in North America.

The website was started in 2020 by Tommy Wylde, who was also the original writer of most of the content on the site. Since then, a lot of writers have joined Floofmania in order to help build it into a real all-in-one encyclopedia about all things wildlife!

Author & Editor: Tommy Wylde

Hi, I’m Tommy! I’m the founder of Floofmania.com. I am an animal enthusiast and self-proclaimed wildlife expert as well as a dog trainer and breeder of the breed Löwchen.

Since I was a kid, I’ve been wildly fascinated by animals, both from growing up in a rural area where there were always animals around, but especially from seeing them in the wild.

Floofmania’s Experts and Fact-Checkers

Here at Floofmania we take animals and wildlife seriously, and while our writers are both experienced about all things animals as well as great researchers, we think it’s important that you can be sure that the information you find on this site has been fact-checked, verified, and approved by animal experts.

We’re still in the beginning phases of getting our content overhauled by experts, but we hope to eventually have experts on all our different groups of animals.

Floofmania’s Awesome Writing Team

Since Floofmania was created back in 2020, several great writers have joined us in creating great content about animals and wildlife, so much so, that the site has pretty much turned into a group project today.
