Do animals have a sense of rhythm, too?

Anyone who’s stumbled across a video online of snowball the dancing cockatoo knows the answer to this question. Parrots and sea lions have demonstrated the ability to bob their heads to a beat (Snowball likes to boogie to “Everybody” by the Backstreet Boys). Our close primate relatives chimps and bonobos also seem to have a simple sense of rhythm. Scientists are still trying to figure out why these and possibly other animals know how to boogie, but in the meantime we can all enjoy the silly videos online.
