Where to buy it


Animals eat and drink in surprising, amazing and downright weird ways. Bearded vultures throw their food. Dogs slurp when they’re thirsty. Amazon horned frogs swallow their meal whole. Cows burp. You should definitely NOT copy their behavior at the dinner table. It wouldn’t be funny at all. In fact it could be disastrous. So mind your manners and find out what you should NOT do when you’re eating or drinking.
