Interactive video lesson plan for: Animals That Do Drugs

Activity overview:

Turns out humans aren't the only animals that can medicate themselves - many other animals have found ways to deal with illness by using natural remedies. Hank will tell you about some of the most interesting methods animals have found to heal themselves, and maybe get a little crazy in the process.

This is the beginning of Season 2 of SciShow, and our 200th episode! We hope you like the new design elements! Special thanks go to Peter Winkler for all his awesome work on those.
