Some facts come to prove that things in our textbooks are sometimes distorted, exaggerated, or even false. For example, we’ve always been taught that bulls can’t see any color but red and that’s the reason why they get angry when they see the red cape or muleta of the fighter. Will you be much disappointed if we told you that bulls can’t see and recognize any color at all? It’s only the sound of muleta movement that makes these animals go wild not the color be it red or blue.
Such and many other interesting things that weren’t taught at school were found on the Internet with the help of users who shared these facts. Scroll down to see the photos and be truly impressed!
