2 All bats are blind

Nope, That's a myth, About 1,100 Species of bat can see and their vision is good, But not good as night-hunting animal's vision. - hello

3 Wolves eat humans if they are near or see them

I read a true story about a friendly black wolf who hung around a town in Alaska. His name was Romeo. He was friends with all the local dogs and they'd play together! A book was even written about him.

First of all - Wolves are shy, They often stay away from human life, Second - They will only eat humans if they are starving or rabid. - hello

4 Pigs are always dirty

Yes, they are.

Sometimes, Pigs are clean animals, Here's what google says. "Pigs are clean animals, Here's what google says, Pigs are actually very clean animals. If they are given sufficient space, pigs are careful not to soil the areas where they sleep or eat. And forget the silly saying “sweating like a pig”"pigs can't even sweat! That's why they bathe in water or mud to cool off." And the saying "Sweating like a pig" Well, Pigs can't sweat because they don't have sweat glands, That's why they roll in mud. - hello

5 Dolphins are always happy and smiling

According to studies, Some dolphins are Unhappy,Stressed, Or depressed, Yes, Animals can get depression and stress. - hello

6 Cows are more stupid than most animals

Cows (especially bulls) can be really smart. They are actually smarter than horses. At rodeos, bull riding is more difficult than riding a bronco because a bull knows to spin in a tight circle and to change directions, in order to get the rider off it's back. Broncos don't usually deviate from bucking straight forward.

Nope, Cows can be smarter than some animals, Cows aren't the first animal that comes to mind when thinking of Intelligence, This myth comes from a insult known as "Stupid cow", Cows also have some emotions too, And they develop Friendship with other cows. - hello

7 Cats are aloof

Aloof means "Unfriendly,Antisocial,Unapproachable" No, Not all cats are mean and unfriendly, Some cats can easily like their new owner, Mostly baby or young cats. - hello

8 Snakes are tricky and evil

Let's just say... "If you won't bother it, It won't bother you too", Also some snakes can be shy. - hello

9 Dogs are man's best friend

They really are.

10 Raccoons always steal

Yeah, they're little burglars. They'll steal food if they can.

Some raccoons could be shy. - hello

The Contenders

11 Foxes are sly/tricky

Only some. - hello

12 Spiders bite you if you go close to them

To be honest, every animal would do the same. If you get TOO close, animals (especially if it's wild) might feel threatened and attack, so don't get too close - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
