It’s said, Animals that drugs are hilarious. Some of them do for beneficiary effects while some do just because of their habits. We can’t blame them for getting indulged into narcotics abuse. While the only thing we can do is to not let them give us ideas or promote drug abuse in our lifestyle.

If you think it’s not possible then look out for African jungle stories where Elephants get Drunk in the wild. The reason specified is because they eat Fruit of the Marula tree.

So you can imagine how comical the result is.
Ever heard of Anting or a bliss? This is a common birds practice done by some smarter birds like Raven, Magpie and even Crows. They sit on an Anthill so that hundreds of ants crawl over their body and they allow the ants to rub all over themselves, so that they secrete acid. That helps in killing undesirable ticks, mites etc. and makes the ants safe for consumption.
Birds are so addicted to Anting that they may even promise you to sing a song if you find a anthill for them. Imagine how fabulous it should be , no?
