We've heard all these things about animals and their behaviors and we've all believed them. In fact, many of these myths have been around for so long that people even get angry when you debunk them. However, these things are not facts and they have only anecdotal evidence (as in, you heard a story from a friend who had a cousin who knew a guy...) to back them up, not scientific data. These are 10 of the myths about animals that many people still believe, and which science tells us are not true.

Are these untrue myths really true? That's up to you to decide but have fun taking a peek at these untrue myths about animals.

    Wedding Rice Kills Birds

    «
    »
    Where this one came from, I can't say. Modern dehydrated rice is different from wild grains, but in order to expand it needs to be submerged in boiling water, not a teeny little bird's stomach. The idea that any bird would be killed by eating any sort of grain is odd ...when you think about it. But it won't go away. Everyone thinks that birds will explode when the rice expands. People won't stop thinking this is true. And fine, it seems like a silly tradition anyway, so I guess if people stop throwing rice, it's a good thing.

    Plus, lots of hard little bits of uncooked rice + concrete church steps could spell trouble for aging inlaws.
