A cockatoo who has become YouTube sensation for his dancing has added a bunch of new moves to his repertoire.
Snowball became a social media superstar in 2007 thanks to a YouTube video of him rocking out to the Backstreet Boys’ hit “Everybody (Backstreet's Back).” SWNS reports. Back then the bird's moves included bobbing his head, stamping his feet and kicking his leg in the air to the beat.
Snowball’s “diversity of movements” attracted the attention of researchers, who worked with him and say the bird has expanded his repertoire. After filming the cockatoo dancing to '80s classics “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” scientists picked up on 14 different dance moves. These included “head-banging,” a “body roll” and what researchers dubbed “Vogue,” where the cockatoo moves his head from one side of his lifted foot to the other.
