A headbanging cockatoo has wowed researchers after showing off 14 different dance moves to 1980s classics.
Snowball, who has never had a dance lesson in his life, was seen lunging, lifting his feet and swinging from side-to-side to the likes of Another One Bites The Dust and Girls Just Want To Have Fun.Scientists from the US believe the sulphur-crested cockatoo's "remarkably diverse spontaneous movements" show that dancing is not limited to humans.
They believe it is a response to music when certain conditions are present in the brain.

They continued: "Another possibility is that some moves may reflect creativity.
