    I was listening to the radio this evening and they were talking about animal trivia. I couldn’t help but to think up of so many fallacies that have been circulated time and time again.

    Do you know what a pregnant goldfish is called? Some would try to make you believe that a pregnant goldfish is called a twit, or a twerp.

    In reality there is no term for a pregnant goldfish because goldfish never get pregnant! Female Goldfish lay eggs and the eggs are fertilised by male fish outside of the body.

    There are however, some fishes that do get pregnant such as guppies, mollies, platies and some sharks!
