Yesterday my wife told me that she wanted to see an elephant up close at the circus that was in town, because she wanted to see it pee......I said what would you want to see an elephant's wang? She said that she didn't want to see a male, that she wanted to see the female's hose like urinating device......I told her that female elephants don't have umm...wangs. She said 'well horses do, so why wouldn't they!' Evidently her brother convinced her when she was a child that interesting 'fact'.
She is 27.

This isn't my belief, but my younger cousin's. My aunt (her mom) works in a video store, and loves horror, so my cousin was exposed to all kinds of monster movies at a VERY young age. When she was 4 her and a friend were playing in a field near a cow pasture, when they ran inside bawling. When ask what was wrong, they claimed that the cows were zombies in disguise, because they went "Murrrrhhhh...." like a zombie instead of "Moo." She is still slightly suspicious of cows, three years later.

For the longest time I thought King Kong was a real primate...I thought it was just a really huge gorilla.And then one day when I was 17,while waiting in the concession line my friend made a random remark about how the kangaroo is the only living animal that begins with K...and then I shouted "No it's not!!King Kong begins with K!" My friend really thought I was joking!

I used to believe that wolves were in the dog family, and foxes were in the cat family... and I'm still not too sure I'm that far off, even after 50 years! Think about it: a fox's babies are called "kits", and they sometimes make a sound that's a lot like a meow. Their faces are more cat-like, in my opinion, than dog-like. I think they run a little bit like cats, as well.

My Grandpa told me there was a tiger living in his bushes just below his bedroom windows. He told me that if I waited and watched, I'd hear him and maybe even see him! Everytime we visited him, he'd take me to go look at the tiger. I'd stand on my tip toes looking out his window, down at the bushes waiting to see his tail flickering through the air. I heard that old tiger several times, but I never saw a thing. ;)

when i was little i used to think that in England we kept all the white ,black or brown sheep in the fields to make all the white, black and brown jumpers. Other countries in the world had the red sheep and the yellow sheep and the pink sheep etc to make all the other colours in jumpers.
It is logical to a four year old!

Seems like my first acquaintances with the word "rodent" were heavily associated with animals being identified as "rodents" either when they were seen crossing a road, or when they were seen as road kill. So I thought they were called rodents because they were animals likely to be seen in the road.

I used to think that Shamu was my whale and that he just lived at Sea World and they took care of him for me.

I used to believe that unicorns were real once. They were just late for Noah's ark.

My Father used to tell me that Unicorns existed a long time ago, but everyone liked them more than Jesus, so God killed them all.

Eu acreditava que quando uma pessoa era mordida por uma tartaruga, só conseguia se soltar dela se desse um trovăo na hora.

Também acreditava que se fizéssemos "careta", e um vento forte passasse na hora, a cara da gente ficava igual ŕ da "careta" pra sempre.

A friend of mine told me that if cows or horses were crossing a river and the water reached their anus, they would drown. I learned this when I was a sophomore in college, so until senior year I thought this true until I met my fiance's friend. He's a cow farmer and told me otherwise... but then again I'm not very convinced about this not drowning bussiness.

When my son was about 6 he loved to feel velvet. One day we went to a horse barn and he petted the horse's nose. He said, "it feels like velvet." I admit this is really bad. I told him, "Where do you think that they get velvet from? It comes from horse's noses."

I never really thought any more about it until he was traumatized in second grade by seeing his teacher wearing a black velvet pant suit and all he could think of was all the poor horses that had given their noses to make that dress.

Of course I apologized and feel horrible now. I never ever say things like that around the kids anymore.
