Dolphins on Drugs – Pass the Puffer!


pufferfishDolphins are said to have many human-like social traits; including the predilection for recreational drugs it seems.

Hidden cameras captured a pod in action as they got ‘high’ from nerve toxins released by a pufferfish in waters off Southeast Africa.

In the incredible scene, filmed for a Discovery Channel special, the sea creatures are seen rolling on their backs with their eyes closed in an apparent state of bliss.

At one point the dolphins are seen floating just underneath the water’s surface, apparently mesmerized by their own reflections.
