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.

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.

My dad once told me that the giant rolled-up hay bales that we would pass as we drove through the countryside were elephant poop. I believed that until I went on a 7th grade trip to the zoo.

I used to genuinely believe that cowlicks came from cows licking you. I was probably three when we passed a pasture and I asked "is that the cow that licked me?" I will never live that down.

That there was one dinosaur still left - the Rhinosaurus. When my teacher told me it's pronounced "rhinoceros" I thought, "poTAYto/poTAHto, it still looks like a dinosaur to me."

When I was four or five, I was sitting in the car with my whole family when my brother asked my grandpa where jaguars (the car) were made. I was surprised that animals were made in different countries so I asked "where are elephants made?" It took me a few years before I realized why everyone in the car was laughing at me!
