It is truly amazing to see the sheer intellect of some animals. Sure, we all know that they have to be very smart and intuitive to survive in the wild, but the fact that we don’t come in such close contact with them makes us twice as much surprised when we actually see their capabilities. It might be the way they observe their surroundings or a skill they’ve acquired that makes them so special, but it will leave us in awe for sure.

This birdy sure knows how to impress us. Tony the ring-billed seagull has no problem showing off his smooth dance moves on command. The footage is courtesy of Messinger Woods Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center where Tony is a resident. Seagulls have long been known to interact with humans. In fact, many sailors would say that seagulls are just like their pets. Back in the day, the only distraction for the sailors would be the seagulls and their antics on the decks of the wooden ships. We guess that some of that must have rubbed of on this birds, because they have acquired a few characteristics.

We’ve seen other cases of seagulls making spot on impressions of some human qualities, and they are all amazing and hilarious. What Tony does is so amazing because he gets it done on command. He waits patiently for his trainer to give him the go and then he starts to tap furiously on the ground with his feet. It is absolutely adorable! Watch as he shows off his best "Fred Astaire" impression.
