Do you think you have a pretty good understanding of the natural world? Because OH NO YOU DON'T!

The world around us is full of life--and not just in nature reserves and national parks. There are plants, animals, and all kinds of living things right in your town or city. They live in your backyard, in your house, and even inside you!

No matter where you call home, nature is there. You just have to look for it. But how much do you really know about nature?

For example, we all know that. . .

  • The dinosaurs that roamed the Earth before humans are all extinct
  • Plants can get all the energy they need from sunlight
  • Spiders are insects. . . and creepy
  • AND that sharks are fearsome predators. . .

Do we...? Because... OH NO THEY AREN'T!

These commonly held misconceptions about nature are everywhere, but none of them are true!
