when i was a kid my granddad used to tell me there were wolves in the woods to stop me wandering off during picnics. i got so scared that my mum told me there was no such thing as wolves, and they all became extinct years ago. no-one ever corrected this belief, until i was 26 and my hubby laughed at me for still thinking there was no such thing as wolves.

My great-grandmother taught me that mountain goats had legs shorter on one side than the other. I imagined all of those goats needing to walk forever in the direction in which their particular anatomy allowed them to walk without falling over.

When I was young, my brothers told me that hammerhead sharks killed you by literally hammering you on the head. I has nightmares about driving through a wave and then being pounded to death by an angry hammerhead!

When I was younger and watching a lot of western movies I believed that horses had the power to bring cowboys back to life by licking their faces . This seemed to happen a lot when a cowboy had been shot or knocked out . Their horse would stand over them give them a lick and they would be revived .

We had a wooden crocodile from Africa and my brother told me it was just dried out, and if I poured water on it, it would come alive. I believed it, and even warned my friends not to do that or it would eat us!

I thought that if you saw a stag or an elk head mounted on a wall, the rest of the animal was on the other side in the next room.

When I was little, I saw a possum in the middle of the road (dead, of course). I asked my mom what it was and she said, "Roadkill, sweetie. That's what happens when you run out in the road."
The next week, we were at the zoo and a woman came out of a room holding a live possum. I screamed at the very top of my lungs, "Look, Mom! Roadkill!!!"

When my neighbor was about five, she ran up to a bunch of older boys stomping on those prickly "monkey balls" that come from trees, and started screaming, "Don't hurt the monkeys!" Apparently, she thought monkeys came from eggs.

I used to believe that the first time I heard about an animal was the first time ANYONE had heard about it. The platypus was discovered sometime in the early to mid-nineties.

When I saw a picture of someone milking a cow, (with a bucket underneath it) I thought that person was trying to encourage it to pee.

For several years I believed that if you stuck your tongue out near a horse, it would try to bite your tongue off. I thought that my riding teacher told me that. Turns out, she said that I shouldn't stick my tongue out while riding because I might accidentally bite it.

During my elementary school years I believed that all animals had curseword names because female dogs were referred to as "bitches". Somehow I assumed male dogs were called "bastards" but was embarrassed to ask what the curseword names for other animals were, though I was dying of curiousity.
