    47. Only animal besides human that can get sunburn: pig

    Very entertaining list, however I know for a fact that this one is not true.

    There are a few more that I think are not correct, but I have to check on them before I say anything. The only reason I brought up the thing about the sun burn is I know of a lady that thought goats could not get sunburned and let a poor little buck kid get a nasty sunburn.
