More drunk animals

Turns out birds aren’t the only animals that get drunk on fruit.

Last month, I blogged about a study that found young birds got “drunk” on fermented berries and even exhibited symptoms familiar to people who drink too much.

My coworker, Kyle Greenwood, read the blog post and was reminded of one of his favorite movies as a child, “Animals are Wonderful People.”

I’ve never seen the movie, but Kyle sent me this YouTube clip. In it, you’ll see African animals getting drunk on marula fruit.

I giggled uncontrollably.

My favorites: The stumbling monkeys and the elephants that are unable to walk but continue to munch on the fruit.
