Growing up, I believed (and would point this fact out to everyone - especially vegans) that cows utters would explode if they were not milked.

As I was the oldest, it was my job to warn my siblings of possible dangers around them. One day, mom took us all to the zoo, and we were excited that we were nearing the monkey house. On the way, I explained that the red-assed baboons could breath fire. Mom couldn't understand why the other kids suddenly wanted to leave and got hysterical when we got to the baboon cage. It helped that one of the baboons was throwing a tantrum and screaming. Which made my siblings start screaming, too. Classic.

from the nursessy rhyme baa baa black sheep i somehow got the idea that as white wool came from white sheep and there were black sheep so black wool came from them that there was sheep of every colour from which we got every colour of wool. When i went to a farm on a school trip i excitedly asked the farmer if he had a pink sheep.

I used to believe that the 'duck crossing' and 'deer crossing' signs on the side of the road were actually put there by the ducks and the deer. I remember asking my mother how ducks and deer learned to read.

When I was younger I lived by Grain Alligators (grain elevators) and had always wondered how the alligators had gotten into the tall concrete buildings and how people got the grain in with out getting eaten.

I used to belive my Dad when he told me that all the sea creatures come onto land to go to sleep at night. When on holiday I used to sit staring at the shore at dusk waiting for the animals to start pouring out...

when i was little (perhaps only 2 or 3) my older sister had me convinced that i had a mouse living in my head. this, she explained, was why i got the sniffles all of the time. she further explained that the only way to rid my head of said mouse was to take a cabbage, cut it in half and sleep with my ear against it; this way the mouse would leave for a better environment & no harm would come to it or my brains. this went on for about a year, until one day we had to explain to our mother why there was a head of lettuce in my bed. . .

I was talking to the people today (07/05/18) about a rabbit I saw on my back porch when the youngest co-worker, Norman, commented that he disliked rabbits because they dug holes in his yard to lay their eggs.
I said, "You must be thinking of the Easter Bunny because a rabbit is a mammal and mammals don't lay eggs, except for the platypus."
He was so convinced he was correct that he Googled the information. Of course, he was embarassed to find he was incorrect. He said his neighbor had told him that rabbits lay eggs and he never thought to question it.
I am going to show him this post on Monday.

I new a girl in highschool who thought that lobsters could speak. Apparently, as a small child her biological father hid behind a lobster tank and repeated everything that she and her sister said, like a parrot. Later, after she was adopted, she would run up to lobster tanks at the grocery store and speak to them, earnestly expecting a response. It took her adopted folks a while to figure out why.

When I was 2, my family went to Galveston for vacation. I had just seen the movie "Jaws" and was terrified of sharks. While sitting on my dad's lap on a tube in the ocean, I asked him where the sharks were. He told me that they hold them back with a net. I completely freaked out, because all I could imagine was Jaws tearing through the net to get to me. To this day, I have an unnatural fear of sharks...

When I was little I used to think that some children turned into animals, which was where I thought pets came from

When I was little I used to believe that each and every animals sound, was its name. Like, for example; a cat, instead of saying "meow", would say "cat", and a bird would not say "tweet", or "chirp", but "bird". What was I thinking?

When I was a kid, I didn't know that sheep would have their wool shaved off. I thought a sheep with wool was one kind of animal and a sheep without wool was a totally different animal.

For some reason I used to believe that they weren't REAL cows unless they were black and white dairy cows. I have no idea what I thought the other cows were but I know I didn't classify them as proper cows.
