Can touching a toad give you warts? Since childhood, we’ve been reading and hearing a lot of “facts,” the truthfulness of which we never doubted. However, many of them are artifice. There are so many false myths we spread from day to day that it’s about time the world of science created an entirely separate department dedicated to myth debunking! Today, we’re talking about animals. We think we know everything about them. However, some facts, which we probably believe, only mislead us. Bright Side decided to find out which facts about animals are not true and put an end to these questions.

– Elephants walk really quietly.
– Grapefruit is the biggest thing the blue whale can swallow.
