Sure, your dog can get up on his hind legs when he wants attention, but does he know how to boogey? According to Radiolab, there are only two animal species who really “know” how to dance—as in, respond to a beat and matching motion to a music, as opposed to just moving rhythmically. Think you can name them?
The answer is complicated (and still debatable!) but our only animal co-dancers just may be parrots and Asian elephants.
