We all know that “back in the day” people weren’t as educated as we do now, and so mistakes like “Hey, I thought unicorns exist” were common. If there are horses and rhinoceroses, why can’t there be a combination of the two? Well, those days are over. Below are 8 animals some people still think are real;
By far the most innocent mistake on the list. Unicorns are close enough to real horses that by some mistakes can potentially be real. As one of the top “go to” mythical creatures it’s appeared in Harry Potter, toilet commercials, and ice-cream commercials. With this kind of media presence unicorns make a convincing case for themselves. But they obviously don’t exist.
Here too, I blame the media. The media made Trump happen, and it also made a surprising amount of 21st century adults believe that dragons are real. Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, How to Train a Dragon, Eragon – heck. Well, I will like to tell you that dragons don’t exist in real life.
3. Vegetable Lambs
How come can a creature that is both a plant and an animal exist? A lamb that bears fruits. Well, people think this is real. This “animal” is especially interesting because it has been mentioned several times across different cultures and different books. It’s first mention was in Jewish folklore, but biologists, poets, and writers have mentioned it multiple times too.
It is said to be a turtle that is actually an island floating through the ocean. We all know that turtles can be huge, but many kids today still think they can be big enough to be an entire island which is not true.
A rabbit with horns? how cool is that? I wish these were real though. This animal comes from North American folklore, and many kids today still believe it’s a real animal.
