Going Outdoors In Colorado: Debunking The Myths
I have enjoyed watching Mythbusters so much I thought I would bust a few of my own.
Colorado is home to a lot of history and as usually happens, some myths as well. Let's take a look at a few Colorado myths that really need to be debunked, shall we?
No, they won't. Snakes would rather avoid you that chase after you. That being said, don't press your luck with snakes. If they let you go your way, go your way.
Totally false. Anyone who has ever gone out in the winter and exerted themselves no you lose just as much water in the winter as you do in the summer. The rule of thumb is if you're out and about in Colorado, drink water.
Porcupines have a deadly aim with their quills:
No, they don't. As a matter of pure fact, they do not shoot out quills at all. Their quills stay connected unless a predator decided to rub up on one. If you do that, yes you might get stuck, but not from them becoming airborne.
Not true. While you honestly have no business touching an egg in the first place, many people believe doing so will mean the parent blows off the egg. Not true.
I hope that makes you feel a little more confident about going out and about in Colorado.
