Sometimes I have a third leg.
Does that count?

I saw this on an animal documentary that was made a decade ago.

It's cool as long as the heads don't touch. Allegedly.

I saw this in my house two decades ago. My wife had a parrot, who had the run of the house. But his wings were clipped so he had to walk everywhere. To climb onto the sofa with us, or up into his cage, he pulled himself up with his beak and claws.

Not news to anyone who's ever shared their home with a budgie.

If I could fly, I would be the best free climber in the world.
