Cartoon lies we thought were true

90% of the world’s population remains good children’s years in front of a television receiving immense amounts of information and of which very rarely are challenged.

For example, cartoons have lied and disseminated misconceptions about some animals, among other things. See:

We live in deceit for a long time

Ostriches never hide their heads as they possess many natural defense mechanisms that allow them to defend themselves against any attack and never bury their heads to flee from any danger, on the contrary they dig but for the sole purpose of look for food and bury their eggs.

As if that were not an ostrich can run 90 km per hour and can kill a lion just by kicking it, then it is wrong the version that from very young we saw on our television screens.

“Mice don’t like cheese,” and in many cartoons they get a trap with a piece of cheese, but in reality these rodents don’t like cheese at all, as they have a very developed level of smell and cheeses have a very strong smell.  Mice prefer grains, fruits, sweets, insects.

Bulls never attack and chase someone who wears red clothing, bulls are unable to tell apart whether a cape is red, green or blue and “what strikes them most is movement.” I mean, we were tricked into believing that a bull could attack us for wearing red.

“The coyote is faster than the roadrunner”, how many times do we not be unscathed to see that i could never catch him? But in reality a roadrunner reaches a speed of 32 km per hour and a coyote can run no more than 69 km per hour. Good to know, because the coyote still has hopes of being able to catch up with the roadrunner. It’s not always good to believe everything television tells us.
