Well, well, Mother Nature, you can get Naughty indeed. Fascinating. I wonder how many others in the wild go on to 'the wild side? There is of course catnip for cats.

Hey! We all need a break. These guys apparently know how to have fun and NOT kill themselves for it. We could learn a lot from them, eh?

(The documentary series premieres on January 2, 2014 on BBC One (the pufferfish behavior is featured in the second episode, airing January 9). thx!

Interesting...never too old to learn something new. Sounds like they're enjoying themselves, and in these perilous times, they seem to have a bit of release.
