I once thought you could get cancer from moles, as in the rodent. I later found out it meant skin moles, not rodent moles

I thought that you could combine any two species of animals, didn't matter how different they were, and create really cool hybrids. I was constantly imagining up these hybrids thinking I'd be the one to really give it a go and discover all of them one day

I used to think that all gazelles were female, simply because it sounded like a female's name(like Giselle)

She didn't have a clue about what I was saying, until i showed her a book about animals and said "It says "mountain.. gayzul" and my mom laughed and said "No no no...It's pronounced guh-ZELL!!".I got embarrassed and i am still embarrassed to this day

When i was 7 years old, i liked animals a lot and especially gazelles. This one time when i was watching a nature documentary, I decided to be like a gazelle and imitate its jumping and running.

So I did. I tried to jump like an awesome gazelle but i ended up falling on my knees and hit my mouth on the computer desk. It hurt real bad and I spent the rest of the day screaming and crying in pain! I never watched another animal documentary again! At least I learned my lesson to never imitate what you see on animal documentaries ever again!

When I was a kid, there was this one toy in the store I REALLY wanted but it was too expensive. My friend for some reason told me that if you really want it, you have kick a rabbit barefoot and say "I NEED IT!" and then tell your parents.

It didn't work, I didn't get the toy and all i got was a bruise on my leg.

I used to believe that fireflies went to sleep for the night as soon as it got dark. Or at least that's what I was told, probably so I would go inside. It wasn't until my 20's when I was hiking with some friends at night and saw fireflies that I expressed out loud, 'Wow, I can't believe these guys are out so late.' It got quiet and at that point I realized...

Sometimes, when me and my family would go camping, we would bring along Nutter Butters, as they were my favorite treat at the time. One time, I think it was on the way back from the trip, I got full and said I couldn't eat anymore of the Nutter Butters. My dad, who was driving, then told me to give the remaining ones to him so he could feed them to the "pink elephants" we were going to pass by, but that if I watched I would scare them away. Little did I know that when I looked away, my dad just ate the cookies himself.

I thought cows and bulls were a separate species, which is understandable. You cannot blame me. You can only call nature ridiculous for making cows female and bulls male.

I used to think that you could become crabby after you got pinched by a crab. I was afraid to go to the beach because I didn't want to become crabby.
