    Same reasons human do, for hygiene and to impress potential mates. Birds, for instance, groom themselves to remove parasites, keep them in aerodynamic condition and waterproof.

    In social animals, such as primates, grooming is a social activity to get together and clean to maintain one another’s body or appearance. It is a way of bonding, reinforcing social structures, family links, and relationship building.  It can also be used as a form of conflict resolution and reconciliation.
