Dancing parrots (and elephants, too)

2 May

No, it’s not some kind of YouTube ruse or even a clever trick. Some animals have rhythm according to papers published this week in Current Biology (this one and this one). So, yes, the science is cool, but when there’s a fun video to go with it? Even better.

We’re a parrot-loving household (a nearly 7-year-old Senegal parrot), but we also have a vested interest in elephants these days (my husband’s dissertation research). Unfortunately, no video of dancing elephants :(.

    The sad thing is that this bird has more rhythm than some people I know!
