Hump Day Humour : Cockatoo

Recommended Posts

I am not sure what the fuss is about.  1/2 bottle of rum and most of us could do it as well :D



Snowball the sulphur-crested, headbanging cockatoo has been dancing his way through talk shows and commercials for years, baffling scientists around the world.

He's now become the first non-human animal documented as being able to boogie to a beat.

A group of scientists filmed Snowball's reaction to two 80s classic tunes --  'Another One Bites the Dust' by Queen, and 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' by Cyndi Lauper -- to gauge the reaction of the 12-year-old cockie.

Joanne Jao Keehn, a cognitive neuroscientist and dancer, then analysed the footage and all the moves he performed as the music played.

She and her colleagues found the bird had at least 14 distinct dance moves, ranging from headbanging to body rolls.
