Hamsters are the heaviest drinkers in the animal kingdom. Researchers have found that the rodents can guzzle the human equivalent of a litre and a half of 95% ABV vodka. They need this hardy tolerance to get through the winter, when their hoards of ryegrass seeds and fruit start to ferment. But they also seem to have a taste for it. “Given the choice between water and alcohol, they go for the booze.” (The Atlantic)
