Animals with Misleading Names

I had to look these up. It was interesting to me that so many of these animals have names close to other animals.

The electric eel is actually a knife fish. The mountain goat is actually more closely related to cows than goats.

The king cobra, as it says, isn’t a king. Neither is the Eastern kingbird.

The horny toad description below had me laughing.

It was fun to look these up and see the actual photos of the animals, along with the descriptions.
