Asked by: Tom Kennett, Margate
Many animals love a tipple. Two examples are parrots and elephants. Some Australian parrots have discovered that sugar spilled from cane trucks and wet by dew overnight can rapidly ferment in the Sun, providing free booze. A herd of elephants in West Bengal once discovered an illegal distillery, drank 150 litres of alcohol and then smashed down a village.
- Why do you get hungry when you’re drunk?
- Can the body absorb the alcohol in hand sanitiser gel through the skin?
