Jaguar trips on hallucinogenic plant

This is an interesting clip borrowed from the “Peculiar Potions” episode of BBC’s series “Weird Nature” – A Jaguar in the Peruvian rain forest eats Yage, a vine containing hallucinogenic chemical DMT, used by natives in a ritualistic ceremony involving Ayahuasca. This clip also shows Reindeer eating fly agaric (amanita) mushrooms. Natives used these mushrooms for their hallucinogenic properties as well, possibly explaining the Santa Clause myth.
