Milk snakes also sneak into baby's crib and crawl into their stomach via the
throat and drink the milk while baby sleeps.

Here are some I heard about bowfin. " They have green blood, its
concentrated in a big vein in the fillet. Only Indians can eat this" ( I was
actually told this, so please don't get on my case about being insensitive).
" When they bite you, they inject poison that may lead to the need of
amputation, or death". " They only eat bass".
