I read one by an ethnobiologist on a trek, Who found a goat guarding its magic mushroom patch, if he approached the mushrooms the goat got very peeved.

I thought I had heard about this before but the blow fish were used as more of a parcel, the dolphins are playing pass the parcel or use it to play games like football/rugby, pass the fish (ball) to each other.

Either way poor blow fish #BlowfishLivesMatter

This has been suspected and observed for quite awhile. I've been talking about this often on ATS. There's been articles on it and more, I'm honestly confused how this is suddenly news again. I thought when I saw it pop up again they had confirmation getting high was why, but it's the same uncertain claims as before. Might be, maybe, could be this instead, etc.

Anyway, glad it is news again. Is good to have more topics on the animal kingdom and their similarities to ourselves.

Well the rule is against personal use and encouraging use. I'm pretty sure Seasonal is,

A: Not a Dolphin describing his personal experiences passing the puffer,


B: Not in danger of influencing any dolphin youth to engage in puffing, as the lack of understanding English, or hands to type with prevent them from engaging with us on these boards.

I tried smoking salmon once.
It was really hard to keep it lit.

We've known about dolphins puffing on pufferfish for quite some time:

Is this a universal need, the need to "escape" for a while.

From another Perspective, humans are 'driven' to 'transcend' the superficial!
Almost every human genius who advanced humanity by quantum leaps was stoned on something!
Maybe Mr. Crick was 'escaping' on '___' when his DNA revelation came to him, winning him the Nobel Prize for work done while tripping ballz! Maybe he was attempting to transcend his 'common' mind/limitations? *__-
The Perspective in India is that he is a 'Holy Man', in Amerikkka, a 'stoner'.
One Perspective venerated, the other dismissed.

Elephants will imbibe fallen fermenting apples until they fall over drunk!
