Ist nur 'ne Promo-Meldung für eine neue BBC-Doku über Delfine, aber wurscht: Flipper hat sich beim Kiffen erwischen lassen. Die Viecher kauen anscheinend auf Kugelfischen rum, die als Verteidigungsmechanismus Gifte absondern. Und Delfine lassen die Kugelfische sogar „rumgehen“ und sind beim Rumkauen besonders vorsichtig.

The brainy mammals have been caught on camera chewing on puffer fish that protect themselves by releasing a nerve toxin which, in low doses, appears to have a narcotic effect on the dolphins […]

"This was a case of young dolphins purposefully experimenting with something we know to be intoxicating," said Rob Pilley, a zoologist who worked as a producer on the series.

"After chewing the puffer and gently passing it round, they began acting most peculiarly, hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection."
