Belief That Horned Toads Live ov
in Rocks Is False; Hoop ar
Snake Is Imaginary. ly
f le:
Many of the false conceptions of
nature held by the average person ce
were disclosed and refuted in an
interview yesterday with various ax
staff members of the University
One of the most common beliefs, g
particularly in the Southwest, is br
that horned toads can live for years rc
at a time sealed in rocks. This is
absolutely false, they said. While it
is the truth that certain snails live
in a dormant state for about five
years at a time, this is due to the
low metabolic process of the mol- t
lusks. Frogs could not live in a rock it
more than a week at the utmost. ti
It is interesting to note, however,'f
that the belief that horned toads t
can squart blood through their
eyes is true and has been seen by bE
many scientists.
That ostriches stick their heads ac
in the sand in order to avoid the di
enemy is another false conception.
Should this be the case, the bird
would have become extinct by now,
as such an action is obviously not
a protection to it.
Snakes are commonly supposed
to swallow their young. This is not
the case, not even for protetction.
If the snake did swallow the young,
which is not impossible physically, w'
the young would be digested and di
could not get out. cl
Other misbeliefs about snakes in-
elude that of the imaginary. hoop at
snake, which is supposed to take its y-
tail in its mouth and roll down a vi
hilI, and the supposed blowing ad- Hi
der, a snake whose breath is des- lu
tined to make one turn black allh
