According to a new study, this new approach might help researchers track developments in human laughter. Since some types of play activity appear like fighting, animals may vocalize or chuckle to prevent escalating and aggressive or dangerous interactions during the game. The researchers published in Bioacoustics on 19 April.

In contrast to combat, playing is frequently recurrent and happens irrespective of other social actions, like matting or seeking food, said Sasha Winkler, a lead student at California’s University in Los Angeles, a candidate for biological anthropology. Although most laughing animals were mammals, they were also called by two species – the Australian magpie (Gymnorhina tibicen) and the kea parrot (Nestor notabilis).
