This little dude loves to PARTAY!!! (Well, not this exact type of little dude--I couldn't find a picture of Malaysia's pen-tailed tree shrew, but this is a tree shrew nonetheless.) According to this BBC report, the party shrews drink fermented flower nectar (Ahhhh....) that would give them "a 36% chance of being drunk by human standards." Except the booze doesn't seem to effect them!!! They just keep partyin'!!!
There are also some videos on the BBC site, including one with the waaaaay British tag "slow loris fancies a tipple." Indeed!
