The tree shrew will drink you under the table

Mental note: Don't ever challenge a tree shrew to a drinking contest. It will kick your ass.

See Malaysian tree shrews binge drink on fermented nectar which doesn't seem to get them drunk at all. Researchers said their findings may shed light on how animals evolved a taste for alcohol and may help in understanding why so many humans abuse it.

Despite the shrews' small size, they are no lightweights when it comes to their alcohol intake.

Nectar from the flower buds of the bertam palm is fermented to a maximum alcohol content of up to 3.8%.

So while we fall flat on our faces going shot for shot, the shrew would stand over us and laugh. Then nibble on our flesh.

Thanks BBC

That's why I don't invite these little bastards to drink... They drink too much and leave before the waiter brings the bill. Damn...

This is totally off topic but holy shit I'm in the middle of a thunderstorm that's shaking my house like a Metallica concert! My fucking Camels just fell off the coffee table! It's so damn dark out that I have the lights on and I can see the cloud to ground lightning on the mountain across from me.
