Use a Fake Animal Fact Checker to Catch Fake Information


fake animal facts

Have you ever wondered how people come up with so many fake animal facts? It’s true, it’s not very difficult. All you have to do is take a few basic elementary school chemistry classes and you can learn how to create your own fake animal stories, drawings and facts. It may sound ridiculous, but it is a very popular hobby for some people. They like to pretend they are the experts, drawing all kinds of crazy critters and animals that cannot be found in the real world.

Some people get into it because they love doing science experiments. They can’t get enough information from real scientists, so they figure if they draw the results they will have to take more biology classes. Others enjoy making fantasy animals and creating fake information about them for people to read. And still other people get into it just for the fun of it, to make someone feel smart when they are having a conversation with them.

An Overview

Let’s look at some examples of what people commonly fake. One popular fake animal fact is that alligators are actually venomous snakes. The fact is, they are not venomous at all! There are actually four toes on each foot, and they can’t hurt you unless you are allergic to snakes. That’s why the best way to tell if someone is making this up is by checking their eyes for redness or swelling, and by asking them if they can give you a specific snake bite incident, which you can do with a simple Google search.

Not only do these experts create fake information for a living, but they also spread fake information for a living. It’s sad to see people pass along bad information because they are lazy. There are better ways to find out the truth. Don’t give away your mind with fake information; you’ll only end up frustrated.

And don’t think that because a particular expert spreads fake information more often than others, that this counts in his favor. In many cases, it’s not even close. Just look at any forum online and you’ll find many posters who complain about “dysentric” experts who spread fake information more than others do.

Don’t fall victim to this type of sham by trying to fact check an article, blog post, or web page. Instead of wasting your precious time looking for the right information, spend it doing something productive. Open up your mind to new ideas, and start thinking outside of the box. This can be especially effective if you’re trying to write a fictional piece. Look for clues that will let you know if the information being given is true or a fake; if there are none, go back and read it again until you can make up your mind.

In The End

The more you can do to keep yourself aware of where fake information comes from, the better off you’ll be. Sometimes it’s not really all that difficult to spot a fake fact. As long as you’re willing to invest a little bit of time to do a little bit of research, you’ll be well on your way to finding the truth. Good luck!
