Ball-balancing parakeet is new king of parakeets

(CBS) - I bet your parakeet isn't as cool as Champ, the amazing ball balancing budgie.

We've featured Purin the Super Beagle before, but Champ might have him beat. This little dude can balance on a tennis ball all by himself! Seriously, that's pretty crazy for a $15 bird at Petco.

You can tell by his demeanor that concentration is key. One false step and it's to the floor you go. But that doesn't stop Champ. He gets right back on that tennis ball until the job is done.

Hell, Champ may have broken a world record for all we know. And if he didn't, he's still a champ (it's in his name).
