I used to believe that horses ate cows and this was why you would never see them in the same field. Not entirely sure where that one came from.

I used to believe that chipmunks grew up to be squirrels. I don't know where I got the idea from but I lived most of my childhood life believing this!

My brother & I visited the zoo with some friends when we were about 7 and 9. One of our friends was a little boy with a very loud shrill voice. While I'm looking at an exhibit I hear him shouting over and over.
"Come look! This rhinoceros has FIVE legs! Look! It's got five legs!"
Of course I had to see this for myself. I got over there and sure enough it had five legs! I yelled
"Hey! It Does have........."
and then it dawned on me.
"No it doesn't."
I swear it looked like another leg though.

When i was young there was a long driveway leading out of our farm onto a road. On the other side of the road was a forest. My Dad used to tell me that giant Bulls and Cows used to live and roam in the forest and that they werent too friendly. I always believed him, and although i have not since looked for them, the myth hasnt been proven(or disproven) since!

When I was younger I really wanted a pet chinchilla. My parents were against the idea so one night after dinner to stop my questioning my dad told me the reason I couldn't have one was because they were vicious. He explained that a friend of his had a chinchilla and when he went out of town his house keeper accidentally left the lid off of its cage. As the house keeper was vacuuming, the chinchilla escaped and ate her leg off.

For years I believed this without questioning. I actually kept up that belief until a friend of mine mentioned wanting one in middle school. I told her that that was a horrible idea and went on to explain the story. It wasn't until after I had finished that I realized how ridiculous that story was.

I used think that squirrels were burying their poop when they really were burying their nuts. I thought that they all ran away from me when I approached them because I watched their friends "burying their poop."
