Some wildlife has developed 'bad' reputations over the years. While reasons can vary-from looking scary to displaying strange behaviors and self-defense techniques-at the heart of these apprehensions lies a misunderstanding of what we're seeing and why. In the past and still today, fears and misunderstandings have led to widespread persecutions of wildlife including poisoning, overhunting, and in some cases, extinction. In this online series, we'll examine bats, opossums, ravens, and wasps, including the reasons they develop unfavorable reputations and the facts and myths that impact them. You'll never view these animals the same way again!
