African Animals Getting Drunk From Ripe Marula Fruit

Animals accidentally getting drunk on fermented fruit is not an uncommon occurrence. In Africa, stories and videos about about elephants and other animals becoming intoxicated after eating fermented marula fruit lying on the ground are common.

However, this effect has been discredited by experts, who argue that an elephant would need to ingest about half a gallon of pure alcohol – equivalent to about 1,400 marula fruit – before it became drunk.
