My name is Tessa, I'm the founder of Life to Legend which is ran through my company Tez Art & Design (www.tezartdesign.eu). I created this website with the intention to provide information to any creative out there, but also to anyone that's simply curious and wants to learn more about different species of animals, plants and more, extinct species and figments from imagination throughout time. If you would like to contribute, either contact me through the contact system on the website or participate in the forum! ~Love Tess
