What music do animals like? Source:

Man invented music thousands of years ago. Scientists believe that the idea of singing different tunes came to mind first settlers of Africa. Since music accompanies us everywhere — a refreshing put the song on the alarm clock, that is each of our day begins with music. But did you know that fans of different genres of music fully and in the animal world? Cows love the classics, parrots really like Sunny reggae, but the sharks are ardent fans of heavy metal. All this, at least, according to scientific studies, which were conducted and still are conducted by groups of scientists from different corners of our planet. I propose to consider the results of several of these studies and to know which animals you could have a party?

Music for cows

If you ever visited the group with the "interesting facts", you probably read that listening to classical music helps cows give more milk. This became known after the study, conducted by researchers from Leicester University (England) in 2001. For 9 weeks, the research included in the farm music with different tempos. As it turned out, calm songs like the "Pastoral Symphony" by Beethoven and "Everybody Hurts" by REM daily helps the cows to give 0.73 litres more milk.

Conclusion: cows love songs by REM, the symphonies of Beethoven, and the songs of Simon & Garfunkel. But the group Jamiroquai Wonderstuff and they don't like

Music for cats

If you turn on your favorite music at full volume, your cat or the cat will still. You would think that peaceful melodies and heavy rock on them absolutely does not work — they only want to eat and hard to sleep. However, scientists from the University of Lisbon (Portugal), once found out that cats still respond to music. They conducted an experiment with 12 cats, which were prepared for sterilization. Scientists included them calm music like the song "Adagio For Strings" by Samuel Barber and hell "Thunderstruck" AC/DC. Calm song calm animals, but when listening to the pioneers of heavy metal, they experienced stress.

Conclusion: cats trying to seem indifferent to music, but they might work by the American composer Samuel Barber and songs singer Natalie Imbruglia

Music for dogs

But dogs react to the music more openly, but generally their tastes are almost the same as in cats. In 2011, researchers from the us state of Colorado have studied the reaction of 117 dogs of various musical compositions. When the speakers sounded calm music, animals relax and even fall asleep. And when you turn on heavy metal dog clearly had a severe anxiety — their body even trembled slightly. Unfortunately, researchers have not shared the names of the included songs, but love dogs to quiet music proven..

Conclusion: dogs prefer melodic music, so we can assume that they also enjoy the symphonies of Beethoven. Could also be that they like ambient

Music for cats

You probably ran across a video where parrots shaking their heads to the energetic music. That they have an ear for music, no wonder — these creatures can even repeat human words! In 2012, researchers from the University of Lincoln (UK) decided to identify musical sounds of parrots Jaco. It appeared that these clever birds are not averse to dance and even sing a variety of rock band and reggae music. Classical music they also love her birds enthusiastically cleaned their feathers.

Conclusion: parrots might like a song by the rock band U2, and reggae is a good music makes the team UB40. But electronic music without words, somehow, provokes the parrots stress

Music for the sharks

Who's really surprised scientists . While shooting the documentary, the staff of the Discovery channel wanted to attract the attention of the white shark, nicknamed Joan of Shark. As these predatory fish can best perceive low-frequency sounds, it was decided to apply it to the sound of heavy music . The crew never reached the desired white shark, but the sounds of electric guitars sailed two individuals is smaller. Interest sharks heavy metal was proven by scientists repeatedly, so that sharks are the real "bad guys" of the underwater world.

Conclusion: sharks with would love to go on concerts of such bands as Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Carcass. They also do not mind to listen to AC/DC

In General, music is a vast subject, about which you can write hundreds of materials. I recently wrote an article which briefly painted what at the moment . They discussed the issue of why people listen to different music, what are musical tastes from a scientific point of view. Also I gave a link to the service, which includessongs of almost all existing music genres.
