Quote:"In what can only described as a dolphin youngsters doing the 'puff, puff, pass', West Australian dolphins may be using blowfish - or 'blowies' - to get high, scientists have found."

"Blowies have a lethal toxin called tetrodotoxin, present in their skin, flesh and internal organs."

"If consumed, this toxin can be deadly to predators including humans."

"A BBC documentary, Dolphins - Spy in the Pod, filmed dolphins chewing on a blowie and "passing the puffer fish around", she said."

"According to the documentary, small doses of the toxin have a narcotic effect and it considered it recreational drug use by dolphins."

They are lucky they don't have legislators.

It's not hard to figure out why they do that.


Ever tried to light a bong under water?

Why should they go out to fight?

"Ms Nicholson said this view was disputed in the scientific community, with some saying the small amounts of tetrodotoxin only made the animal feel numb, not high." So who's saying the animals only feel numb? Has someone bioassayed this themselves?

Speech is affected, and the victim usually exhibits dyspnea, cyanosis, and hypotension. Paralysis increases and convulsions, mental impairment, and cardiac arrhythmia may occur. The victim, although completely paralyzed, may be conscious and in some cases completely lucid until shortly before death. Death usually occurs within 4 to 6 hours, with a known range of about 20 minutes to 8 hours.

It doesn't sound like there's much potential for recreational use among humans.

Feeling 'numb' wouldn't explain why they go back for more. No one I know goes to the dentist because they enjoy Novocain vic.gif
