Trunk and disorderly! Hilarious pictures capture tipsy elephants staggering around South African park after eating huge quantities of fermented marula fruit

Elephants stumbled around and fell over after eating marula fruit in Kruger National Park
Marula fruit apparently has intoxicating effect when consumed in huge amounts by large mammals
Photographs were taken by field guide Ross Couper who works for safari company Singita

This is so funny :D

Alcohol makes animals behave ( falling down, acting stupid ) like humans :D

@ 1min 05sec in video, elephant is clearly 'destroyed' but he try to get more fruits :)

I had a Toy Fox Terrier when I was a kid.  We were at a family picnic and someone gave her beer.  It was funny watching her stagger around then fall down and sleep it off.  Still remember it being funny but I'd never like to see it again.  Just seems cruel now that I'm older.

Yes. I’ve seen a badger drunk after eating too much of ripe plums.

They should put that fruit in all the zoos, number one it gives the animals a 'taste of home' and a break from the captivity, and number 2, it'd increase visits massively :lol:

Sure it does.  Prisoners make such a concoction with fruit and stuff and they call it 'hooch'.

I saw a similar video with giraffes and some primates doing the same thing, years ago.

Behaviorally, it demonstrates that humans are not the only species with a desire to become euphoric, alter their perception of reality temporarily, whatever.  That is, the human penchant for altered states of reality is very much normal behavior.  Call it a vice if you wish, but it is normal behavior.

That was hilarious - the monkey holding his head with a hangover just tipped me over the edge, I had tears of laughter after that. :lol:

These trees grow in the wild in the animals natural habitat - the fruit wasn't put there by humans to get the animals drunk, the animals eat the fruit as part of their natural diet and if it is too ripe the results are what was filmed.
