They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, if that's true, 8-year-old Tanner is quite the flatterer.
He's a bottle-nosed dolphin that can imitate behavior while blindfolded.
With a hand signal, they tell Tanner to mimic his dolphin teammate Kibby, and then blindfold him before she does. Kibby performs the trick, and then Tanner imitates the behavior with 50 percent accuracy.
Researchers believe he's using sound, but say they need to do more research.
