As far as we know, no animal (other than human) has ever been able to maintain a three-object cascade. That doesn’t mean that animals can’t do some pretty remarkable manipulation and balance tricks. Here’s a rundown of our favorites:

BEAR AND STICK

The following video features Claude the Bear from Japan showing off his fancy stick handling. Claude will be teaching a staff manipulation workshop in New York City this January!

DOG ON ROLLING GLOBE

This video features a Jack Russel Terrier balancing on a dog-sized rolling globe (AKA, a basketball). Go dog, go!

MONKEY BUSINESS

Below watch the Soviet juggling Gratchinow use a monkey as a juggling assistant and a juggling prop. We’re not sure what PETA would think of this, but that monkey has skills.

CANINE CONTACT

This well-trained dog gives Michael Moschen a run for his money with some fancy headstalls!

Do you have any videos of animals performing amazing tricks? Let us know!
