Science Alert! Mice Can Harmonize!

Sorry, but I just had a vision of a bunch of mice singing “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  From The Telegraph:

Researchers from Tulane University in New Orleans found that when two male mice of different types were housed together, they slowly began to match the pitch of their songs to each other – a basic form of vocal learning.

And yes, they made a recording.  How long before someone samples this? I already like these guys better than Bieber.
