Animals Drink Alcohol – level 2

28-08-2017 07:00

Many people like a drink from time to time, but it seems that animals enjoy alcohol, too. Scientists thought this for a while, but now, we have proof. Scientists studied the drinking of animals for 17 years.

Chimpanzees, for example, use leaves as a sponge to collect fermented sap from palm trees. Then they put the leaves into their mouths to drink the alcohol.

Difficult words: sponge (a soft thing which can hold a liquid), fermented (alcoholic), sap (the fluid in a plant).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

Is it surprising that animals drink alcohol?
