Dance off: Snowball vs the Scientists

Last year Nature’s Phil Ball wrote about the amazing parrot Snowball, the first animal to be scientifically proven to dance. Earlier this year the research was published, to great media interest.

Now a video has surfaced of Snowball dancing with some of the world’s leading bird biologists at the recent World Science Festival (55 seconds in to the clip below).

The struttin’ scientists (as ID by The Scientist) are: Duke University’s Erich Jarvis, University of Cambridge’s Nicola Clayton, Brandeis University’s Irene Pepperberg, and City College New York’s Ofer Tchernichovski.

Personally, I think Snowball has the best moves.
