Yes, apparently, you CAN train a squirrel to water ski. (And I can't train my dog to walk properly on a leash.)
The Philadelphia Boat Show is this weekend at the Greater Philly Expo Center - and one of the many things to see: Twiggy the water-skiing squirrel. (also, boats. lots and lots of boats.)
Maybe you've seen Twiggy on the big screen - he's been featured in the movies Dodgeball + Anchorman.
Twiggy will perform at 4 and 6 p.m. Friday; noon, 2, 4, and 6 p.m. Saturday; and noon, 2, and 4 p.m. Sunday.
Philly.com interviewed Twiggy's owner/trainer if you'd like to know exactly what goes into training a squirrel to water ski.
