There's an understandable temptation to refer to a cockatoo who dances along to AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long as a 'rockatoo' - but for the sake of your sanity, we are not going to do so. OK, once. Just then. No more, we promise.

This particular Umbrella Cockatoo - also known more simply as a 'White Cockatoo' - goes by the name of Tonto, and he likes to rock... really rather a lot, in fact.

Of course, he's not the only animal to dance along to a good tune every now and again - as our 'Best Animals Dancing Videos' gallery we've got for you below proves without a doubt...
