Some Elephants Got Drunk On Fermented Marula Fruit… And The Result Is Absolutely Hysterical.

April 25, 2014 Stories

They say elephants never forget… but we have a feeling this group of elephants might have some trouble remembering some things the next morning.

In Kruger National Park in South Africa, a small herd of elephants were found stumbling around. No one fed them alcohol, these elephants got themselves drunk. They found and ate massive quantities of fermented marula fruit. Fermentation is a natural, metabolic process that converts sugar to acids, gases or alcohol. When that fruit in particular fermented, it turned into edible alcohol that the elephants gobbled up.

Hmm, this scene actually looks a little familiar…

Hopefully they didn’t have an elephant of a hangover. Even though the animals were intoxicated, it was from a natural cause and they were put to right after a long night of rest (and maybe some Advil in the morning).

We have to admit though, their drunken party was pretty hilarious… so share it with others!
