Where and why do weird and strange, completely false myths about animals evolve? What are some of the most common myths you’ve been told? I’ll share a couple that drive me crazy…
“Harvestmen have the most toxic venom of any spider in the world but you are safe because they can’t bite through human skin.” (eye roll at both the spider part and the venom part)
“Rattlesnakes are learning to be quiet if they feel threatened because feral hogs will find them and kill and eat them if they rattle their tails.” (double inverse eye cross and roll)
What wacky myths have you heard lately?
