I used to believe that dandelions could turn into lions and vice versa and that this was how zoos got lions. This was due to the old "King of the Jungle" and I thought lions could kills anything.

Up untill I was 13, I was convinced that a Haggis was a small, DVD box-sized sandy coloured creature with four legs native to Scotland. Its two left legs were shorter than its right, which made it run around the Scottish mountains in circles.
For those of you who don't know, a haggis is in fact a Scottish meat thing (that you eat)

I always wondered why , if there were electric eels, why didn't everything in the ocean get shocked.

I always thought when I went to the ocean and didn't get shocked, I was just lucky.

When I was younger, my brother and sister convinced me chenille wool came from clams. I don't know how this came up, but I believed this until I was about 13. I would tell my teachers and friends, who all seemed to be very impressed with my knowledge of this fact. One day, while talking about animal rights, my brother and sister finally broke the truth to me...

when i was little i saw on the tv a turtle laying tiny eggs and to me these eggs looked like grapes, so i always thought grapes came from turtles. i was only corrected when one day i (feeling quite clever) told my mum that grapes came from turtles, "i saw it on the tv!"

oops.

When I was little, my dad would tell me all the sounds the animals would make. One day, I got a playset with African animals, and he picked up the zebra and told me that they said "zeeeeebra!" I believed this until I saw real zebras on TV.

Zeeeeeebra!

When I was little my grandparents told me that cows get spots where the water, from their drinking ponds touch them. I actually belived this until about the age of 13. Needless to say I felt really stupid when I tried to tell a friend that and she just laughed at me. Now that I have my own kids I can't wait to pass on this little bit of knowledge to them. Hehe.

When I was younger, my dad put a little barrier (which is here to this day) around a weak widdle tree. I asked dad why he did that. He said "To protect it from weed whackers!". For years I thought a "weed whacker" was a kind of beaver with a chainsaw for a tail, that goes on annual killing rampages angainst widdle trees.
