This is a capacity that everyone thought was uniquely human, but we've found evidence that some animals can keep a beat

Humans are always trying to come up with ways we are so very unique. ::eyeroll:: It's like we've got a species-wide inferiority complex or something. Anyway, yeah, my parrots totally dance. Z. liked jazz and country. M. likes rap and punk. Go figure.

ETA (cuz I can't edit in place) because I realized I was generalizing way too much: The "humans are superior" thing is really more Western, and especially Cartesian Science, than planet-wide.

Also Snowball is totally cool and I didn't mean to be squee-harshing! It's just sorta a thing with me, the whole animals can't use tools have no emotions don't play have no language can't dance. Etc.
