New Delhi, June 11 (ANI): An unusual kind of grass at the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) in China, which dances to musical tunes and songs, has become a tourist attraction.

People stand around and sing to troves of these grasses.

The uniqueness of the grass was observed when some scientists, while out on field trips, relaxed in the wood and sang for self-enjoyment.

They found the blades of the grass opening or closing at their sounds, reports the China Daily.

The dancing grass has made locals recall the story of a Dai girl named Duoyi who loved to dance.

According to the tale, the local brute got wind of it and forced her to dance for him every day. She resisted and jumped into the river. Upon her tomb began to grow gobs of grass that danced gracefully, just as she had done when alive.

However, scientists say that the real reason is the decibel level, which should be between 35 and 65.

They say that sunshine can also send it boogie. (ANI)
