+ - Drunken parrots have hangovers worse than humans->

Submitted by bazzalunatic
bazzalunatic (1840666) writes "Each wet season in northern Australia dozens of colourful lorikeets have to be rescued because they appear drunk, fall out of trees and even get a hangover-like sickness. No one knows quite what's going on, but the best explanation is they get smashed from fermented fruit.

From the story: "Experts say they are not sure if the lorikeets are actually drunk, but they do have tell-tale symptoms. "They exhibit odd behaviour like falling over or difficulty flying [and] they keep running into things," says Darwin vet Dr Stephen Cutter from The Ark Animal Hospital.""
