This is one animal myth that’s true: Eating parts of a pufferfish can kill you because, in a defense mechanism to ward off predators, it contains a deadly chemical called tetrodotoxin.

Polar bears have black skin. And actually, their fur isn’t white—it’s see-through, so it appears white as it reflects light.
Tigers’ skin is actually striped, just like their fur. Also, no two fur patterns are alike.
