When my husband and I first met he shared with me that he believed all zebra's were extinct. He had never seen one and would not believe me until I took him to the zoo and physically made him look at one.

I used to believe that fossils were really magic, when animals were running in the cave, they suddenly turned into stone.

Growing up in Florida I always saw cows and horses in pastures together. I always thought the cows were boys and the horses were girls. When they had a baby together, if the horse had a cow it was a boy, obviously, and of course a horse baby would be a girl.

When I was little I thought lions lived in my living room at night after we all went to sleep. I literally would not leave my room unless one of my parents was awake.

I used to believe that the big white ovals on killer whale faces were their eyes, until a year ago. I'm 20 now, and I've been to Sea World twice.

When i was little I had my own theory on how the dinosaurs died out. I figured that the dinosaurs were so big that the herbivores ate all the plants and died out since there was no food for them. Then all the carnivorous dinosaurs died out since they couldn't eat any of the herbivores.

My brother and I believed that snapping turtles lived in our neighbor's leaf pits in her back yard. We stuck bamboo poles in the leaves and could feel the turtles grabbing on.

when i was young i thought every animal had the ability to regenerate severed parts, it just depended how large the part actually was. i.e. a bear could grow back an ear, a human most certainly could not grow back a leg, but a turtle might, and if i had my own hand cut off, well- if i tried really hard, it might grow back.

I used to believe that if you had an animal listen to classical music, it'd eventually learn how to talk.

When I was little and my family would go for a drive I used to think that there were dinosaurs alseep buried under the hills. I would imagine how they would look when they woke up and all the dirt started falling off of them.

Did anyone watch the old '80's Sesame Street? Does anyone remember the little cartoon clip that had a boy brushing his teeth, and washing his hands all while letting the water run? Does anyone remember the fish that swam up through the pipes to pop out of the drain to yell at him to turn the water off? For years I used to believe you had to keep soap suds/toothpaste/ect. running down the drain, lest that fish think you were wasting water and swimming up to yell at you.

I used to believe that black cats had been witches in previous lives. So I therefore believed that black cats could understand what I was saying in the same way a human could and that they had magical powers to make wishes come true. Once I was playing in the street when I spotted a black cat. So I knelt down and whispered wishes in the cat's ear like 'Can you make me have loads of birthday presents?' and 'Can you make the nasty people at school start being nice to me?' I later begged Mum to buy me my own black cat so that I wouldn't have to keep looking for them in the street. (Mum said no).

When I was about six, I was convinced that the quartz crystals I would occasionally find in gravel were actually dinosaur teeth.

You know the movie 'Planet of the Apes'- the one from the 70's? I used to believe that the guard apes, the ones with the ammo wrapped around their bodies, were real-that they really talked,and acted like adults (I was about 5 to 6 yrs old at the time). I wondered if there were really ape 'actors' a special breed that could do what humans do!

I used to believe that older men were bald because squirrels stole their hair... that's also why squirrels had such bushy tails.

I used to believe that deer listened to the radio, an idea that I got from believing that antlers were vaguely the same sort of thing as antennae
