Animals do some pretty interesting things. Giraffes clean their eyes and ears with their tongues. Snakes see through their eyelids. Some snails can hibernate for three years.

But some other animal tales are more fictional. Can you really get warts from holding a toad? Does a porcupine really shoot its quills? Learn how some of these myths started and how to separate fact from fiction at the Zoo this Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
