Dolphins and Pufferfish

The BBC have documented for the first time Dolphins using pufferfish to get high. The pufferfish releases Neurotoxins and in large amounts can kill the animals but in small doses actually leave the dolphins in a state of bliss. This is because in small doses it has a narcotic effect. Once the dolphins have done passing the puffer fish around they are then free to swim away. The is the first time this phenomena has been documented in the wild.
