What experts say: A male penguin presents a female with the smoothest pebble he can find as a token of love. If the female finds him suitable, she'll add the pebble to her nest.
The truth: Male penguins are notoriously cheap. Even though most male penguins have healthy 401k's and diversified portfolios, they refuse to drop cash on engagement rings. Female penguins usually accept cheap pebbles in hopes that down the road, the male will loosen up and at least spring for a Hulu Plus subscription.

What experts say: Crocodiles consume stones to aid in digestion and to help regulate buoyancy.
The truth: Crocodiles are dumb as hell. Did you know they're actually dinosaurs? They eat stones thinking they're water potatoes. And if they eat too many stones, they sink! Rivers have hundreds of crocodile skeletons at the bottom.

What experts say: Horned lizards spurt blood from their eyes as a last resort against predators. It's meant to confuse enemies, and it also tastes foul to felines and canines.
The truth: Horned lizards are super into the hardcore death metal scene. They like to hang out with their headbanger friends, drink Jägermeister, listen to Cannibal Corpse, and have bloody eye contests with each other. Horned lizards typically don't have jobs.
