A book that highlights scientific studies of some fish species and animals demonstrates that great white sharks prefer rock and roll music.
A new book called The Mice Who Sing For Sex: And Other Weird Tales From The World Of Science gives the rundown on one research project involving great white sharks. Apparently, they behave less aggressively when listening to some music tracks, and the musicians who soothed the underwater beasts the best were monster rockers AC/DC.
What songs by the famous band from “down under” did the toothy fish dig? The two tracks were You Shook Me All Night Long and If You Want Blood (You Got It), rocker favorites that keep getting airtime year after year.
The book, written by neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis, with radio DJ Lliana Bird, also taps into other unusual animal research projects, including studies of cats (which seem to respond best to classical music) and fish in Japan that can get food through color recognition when certain music is played.
The book is set to release on October 8th on Amazon.
