There are 27 doses of Peyote laying around Los Santos in the new versions of GTA V. Getting high off of this allows you to play as a random animal. Apparently they all have fully functional controls with a special move. For example a Seagull that poops

I've found the hawk and a random dog so far. I spent a lot of time flying around and shitting on people.

This is awesome, I may have to get on this sooner than planned.

Can the animals be used first person as well?

Seeing as you play as them by collecting a collectable, does that mean playing with them is a one time deal? I'd really love to just go back to playing as a seagull every couple of hours, just to chill out and poop on people.

... Weirdest sentence I've ever written.

Yep, i'm not ok with that cat gif. But what can you expect from a game where you can kill pretty much everyone. Still a cool easter egg.
You should not be okay with how overly reactive the pedestrians/cops are.

DID YOU JUST BUMP INTO ME THAT'S A STAR/I'M CALLING THE COPS.

I saw a chicken as well, but I'm not giffing as they didn't do anything interesting with it.

I feel like Rockstar are smart enough to know that people will want to replay the sequences.

Maybe it opens up when you find all the Peyote locations?

Thanks for spelling the easter egg out in the thread title.
Yep I dont particularly care but thread title is a spoiler. People gon be mad.

This would be neat though if you could continually play as them. Is there a time limit or something? Or maybe you can until you're beat to death by the police or stomped by some random dude.

Hahahahahaha yes they are overly reactive indeed.

Its just that I spent a while helping animal shelters in the last few years so i'm overly emotional with stuff like that. I'll just play as a mountain lion and get my revenge.

Are these one time only deals? Would be amazing to pop by every so often and be a seagull.

What's that?

Also, this game is looking more and more appealing. Guess I'm in for the PS4 version, given there's no way I'll ever own a PC that'll play it at 60fps.
see here

Beware though it's a story spoiler.

You people serious with the spoiler accusation? A spoiler is telling you what happens in the story of the game, not some random side-mechanic that can be easily overlooked when playing the game.
