When I was in kindergarten I was afraid of going to the zoo because I thought that elephants could suck me into their heads with their trunks...

When I was younger I used to believe that the electrical box on some of the streetlights beside the roads were where they hid the birds and squirrels that were run over. I was six at the time.

I was told as a child that, if I opened the door of our mini van while it was driving, squirrels would get in. This caused me to slide open the door while on the highway. I thought it would be nice to have a squirrel visit.

When I was little I got a pet rat. I had no idea what to feed it so I tried to give it lettuce. The rat liked it and I thought that's all it needed lettuce and water. One day I came home and it was dead. I was devistated! I thought I was going to prison for murder and hiding a pet rat. I went to my mom and cried my eyes out and begged her not to turn me in.

To instill respect for animals my mother told me that they all spoke to each other in ways I couldn't understand. I always thought she ment telepathically, and until my teens I wondered when humans would be able to join in this telepathic communication. I still talk to my dogs as if they understand completely.

When I was in primary school, every now and then some people would come in to do talks on how to be safe doing everyday jobs. One time they came in to do a talk about chip pans saying how you should never put them in water straight after or theyll cause a fire or something along those lines. I thought that chippan was a type of monkey so the whole time was trying to figure out why there would be a monkey in the kitchen and how a monkey could cause so many fires!

I remember as a child thinking that the amount of White on a cow was the amount of milk in them, it wasn't until I saw a cow that was completely White and mentioned to my boyfriend about it needing to be milked and him laughing that I realised how ridiculous that idea was

When I was little, before I learned animals even. My dad told me the black and white things in the fields were called moo dogs. I believed that until I was about 4.

I was in a wood one time and my Auntie told me (cause she knew I was scared of snakes) that snakes grew in ferns! loads of them round the main paths, so I wouldn`t go off the path! I have had a fear of walking through ferns ever since!!!

Until senior year of high school I believed that roast beef was not actually beef. I never even stopped to consider what other animal it might be. I was simply certain, thanks to my older brother, that it was not beef.

When I was in preschool I believe giraffes had long legs so they could kick lions' heads off. I wrote a book complete with a picture.

I once believed the Goat Skull in the backyard would snap at and bite me if I went too close (thanks to my older siblings) and to this day I still feel that gut-wrenching fear when I walk past any animal skeleton.
