    DescriptionTruth or Busted's Animals title explores popular myths and legends about the animal kingdom in a light and humorous way that kids will find unputdownable. Such statements as 'Goldfish only a have 3-second memory' or 'Cow farts are destroying the Earth' are examined as well as where the ideas came, whether they have any basis in truth, or whether they are simply folklore, myths or legends. Each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation.
