The thought of these animals would scare you!
We, humans have an excellent time imagining things. We are creative beings after all. It was yesterday when I was sitting with my niece, and I saw her drawing a giant horned rabbit on her sheet. From fur-bearing trout to a giant horned rabbit, people have a lot of imaginary animals. Imagining something, even if that thing is impossibly wild, is not a big deal but assuming that imagination to be real and publicize it as an existing thing can at times prove to be wrong. Today, we’ll talk about the vivid imagination that has been applied to some animals in the past, and till date, humans believe that the animals exist. But the fact is that they don’t.
Let’s go through some of the mythical animals that have been prevalent for a long time now and try to update our knowledge so as to prevent further transfer of misinformation
The majestic unicorn makes an appearance in the Bible (Numbers 24:8), medieval text, and a number of other places throughout history. Even Roman historians believed in the existence of unicorns. While these stories are incredible, it’s impossible to know what animal unicorns were mistaken to be. Unfortunately, unicorns never existed despite numerous accounts.
This may be hard to believe, yet at one point many did believe in the existence of the Bonnacon. This mystical bull-ish creature was said to have the mane of a horse, body of a bull, and would use its poop as a weapon. This fictitious creature was once said to shoot acidic feces over 600 meters towards enemies.
