  • Welcome to the world's weirdest happy hour where vervet monkeys get rolling drunk and cut loose like kids in a frat house, inebriated elephants go on a drunken rampage, and black lemurs get high after munching on toxic millipedes.

  • National Geographic features the puzzling mysteries of hundreds of whales beached on a shore, thousands of black birds suddenly raining from the sky, spontaneously exploding frogs and, sadly, much more!

  • High in the frozen Japanese Alps, female snow monkeys engage in same-gender sex. Across the African savannah, "Lion Kings" enjoy intimate male friendships. In nature, gender is as flexible as life itself.

  • Meet monkeys that binge drink and throw frat parties, elephants that go on drunken rampages through villages, and lemurs that get high off millipedes, leading scientists to question whether there are evolutionary benefits to psychoactive compounds.

  • If it creeps, crawls, buzzes or sheds its exoskeleton, there's a chance it could cure an illness that's stumping modern medicine. Explore the untapped healing properties of the animals many think are repulsive, but sometimes turn out to be lifesavers.

  • A mother-to-be Adélie penguin sells her body for stones; chimpanzees trade meat for sex; and a redback spider eats her partner alive while they're still mating. Meet the world's weirdest friends with benefits.

  • From blood-firing lizards to zombie snails, some creatures really are stranger than fiction.

  • If you thought man was the sharpest tool in the shed, well think again. In the ever-changing world, animals are employing strategies to stay one step ahead of their predators and prey through systems of memory, communicating, and even mind control!
