1. BBC’s new documentary Dolphins: Spy in the Pod has uncovered dolphins’ naughty habit of “deliberately getting high” on the nerve toxins of puffer fish.
Apparently the footage shows the dolphins “carefully manipulating” a certain kind of puffer fish, which releases the toxin if provoked.
4. Rob Pilley, a producer on the series, also said the dolphins started “hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection” after consuming the toxins.
Pilley said this was “a case of young dolphins purposely experimenting with something we know to be intoxicating.”
