Amused by this article reporting how Australian dogs discovered they
can get themselves "high" by carefully sampling a cane toad's toxin.

I expected to find it was published on April 1, but not so.

Maybe these Qld mutts were just following their owner's bad example?

OBgardens: cane toads compost down nicely, just make sure they are dead,
really dead

Nature is bizarre. Makes me think of this article about how goldfish produce ethanol: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/now-we-know-how-goldfish-produce-alcohol-180964502/

Who would have thought?
