Afterward, they get the munchies
Many people only know lemurs from the old Disney cartoon show, Marsupilami. These are not fictitious animals. They come from Madagascar, an island country off of the east coast of Africa, which is also not a fictitious country from animated movies. But here’s a fact about lemurs that’s surprisingly not fake.
Lemurs like to get high. Like, they love to get high off of centipede toxin. Centipedes secrete this toxin to deter predators from munching on their corpses, but lemurs use the toxin to get the party jumpin’. Scientists observed lemurs actively seeking out centipedes for their intoxicating secretions. Though not deadly to humans, this toxin would cause incredible discomfort.
