...based on true stories.
I'm tempted to punch every person who categorizes animals into groups they don't belong. Ape = monkey is probably the least grievous to my ears. But Whale = fish drives me batshit.
And I guess it's not so bad when a little kid does it (still learning all them nouns and whatever), until you notice the parent is telling them that whales are fish...
...an okapi is a relative of the giraffe and has horns, so the girl who thought an okapi was a cross between a zebra and a horse was clearly a moron.
...okapis can clean their own eyes with their blue tongue. O_O
I like biology (as long as it's not at the microscopic level. I refuse to acknowledge anything too tiny to see with the naked eye as interesting).
...did you know that Crested Screamers have spurs on their wings for stabbing their enemies?
>_> I thought the bird looked stupid until I noticed it has the power to stab me... now I respect them...
