Breaking News: Rats Have Rythm

Researchers have discovered that rats have rhythm and like music. See article below:


Rats have rhythm like humans and like music like Lady Gaga, Queen: Study (nypost.com)


I don't know what to think about this.


On the one hand, it seems like yet another useless and cruel animal-studies project in which they keep animals in cages to prove something that I don't care about and don't need to know. I hope this study was not funded by our tax dollars.


On the second hand, perhaps, maybe, possibly, it will help humans who read this article understand that there is more going on with rats (and other non-human animals) than they realized. I suspect everyone reading this post already knew this.


On the third hand, why don't they just release these rats into their natural habitat (i.e., the NYC Subway System) and then they can watch them dance and sing along with the hundreds of buskers playing music on the subway platforms?


As I said, I don't know what to think about this study. Is it a good thing, or is it a bad thing?
