The parrot with an infectious laugh

Meet the Kea, the parrot comedian of the bird world.

It lives in New Zealand, and is known for being super-smart, playful and a bit crafty.

But scientists have recently made an interesting discovery about them.

They found that Keas have an infectious laugh, which when heard by other parrots makes them join in and feel happier.

This discovery is a world first, as previously scientists only thought mammals like humans and chimpanzees could make animals laugh in the same way.
