Nat Geo WILD looks at the line that separates people from the animal kingdom — and the similarities are downright weird. Bees on the hunt for sugary nectar can become drunk off of fermented tree sap. Meet unlikely animal role models, including male pigeons who will shoo away interested females who are not their life partners. And explore the way animals, like people, can self-medicate — a person might take an aspirin, but many animals turn to mud to sooth ailments.
