Summary

Bats are blind. An old dog can't learn new tricks. The early bird catches the worm. You may have heard some of these common sayings or beliefs before. But are they really true? Can they be proven using science? Let's investigate seventeen statements about animals and find out which ones are right, which ones are wrong, and which ones still stump scientists! Find out whether a cat always lands on its feet after a fall! Discover whether camels store water in their humps! See if you can tell the difference between fact and fiction with Is That a Fact?
