Chatty Zebra Finches May Slur Their Speech When Drunk, But Then Again Who Doesn’t?

Well, they may not be the normal bar hoppers you’re likely to spot out on New Year’s Eve, but a new study shows that when zebra finches imbibe even just a bit, they won’t likely pass a sobriety test no matter how high their tolerance.
