Ultrasonic Love Songs of Male Mice

BBC - Male mice serenade potential mates with ultrasonic love songs, a study by US scientists has revealed. The research adds mice to the exclusive club of mammals that can sing, which has until now comprised only human beings, bats and cetaceans.

A University of Washington, St Louis, team studied ultrasonic squeaks emitted by mice when they smell a female and found that they form complex songs. They have published details in the scientific journal PLoS Biology.
