    Visitors to the Los Angeles Zoo may have been greeted by some misinformation recently, courtesy of a comedian who posted fake facts — many of them absurd — about animals around the zoo.

    Jeff Wysaski puts up fake signs in public places as part of his Obvious Plant project. He has posted photos on his Tumblr blog and social media of signs with absurd "facts" about animals that he put up around the L.A. Zoo.

    One reads: "If you give a tiny trombone to 76 ducklings, they will lead the most adorable parade you've ever seen." Another says: "America's first president, George Washington, was actually 9 koalas stacked on top of each other."

    L.A. Zoo spokeswoman April Spurlock told The Associated Press the signs were taken down shortly after they were posted June 30.
