BBC discovered an underwater life of vice while filming its new TV series Dolphins: Spy in the Pod. Using a fake sea turtle equipped with a camera, the crew was able to get unprecedented access to dolphin pods and their behaviors.
The bizarre footage, which will air in 2014, shows a group of dolphins nudging and chewing on a pufferfish, causing the fish to release its defensive toxins. The mammals then pass the fish around, take in the toxins and appear to go into a trance-like state.

Big kitties have their own version of catnip. Jaguars munch on the roots of a South American vine known as Banisteriopsis Caapi or Yajé. The hallucinogenic root causes the animal to become more playful, and may also heighten a jaguar’s senses for hunting.
Black lemurs have found their own bug repellent. The animals rub the defensive chemicals of millipedes on their coats to keep mosquitos away. The alternative insect spray also has the perk of providing lemurs with a blissful sensation.
