Humans may have more in common with parrots than chimpanzees due to a shared natural ability to dance, a new study suggests. A groundbreaking set of observations has shown a pet cockatoo showing off a diverse array of moves while listening to two well-known hits from the 1980s. Named Snowball, the 12-year-old sulphur-crested bird is shown spontaneously performing a repertoire of 14 moves including the “down-shake”, “body roll” and “downward/head-foot sync”, in time to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. The parrot, who had not been trained or encouraged to dance, also managed 10 separate moves - including “Vogue”, a side-to-side heat tilt synchronised with a foot-lift - while accompanying Another One Bites the Dust. Snowball the dancing parrot stuns scientists with 14 separate moves to Eighties classic hits Looks like Megan has some competition.
