This GoPro video of a waterskiing squirrel is absolutely nuts

It’s easy to make the mistake of assuming squirrels live a tranquil life. After all, they spend most of their time kicking back in trees.

But then there’s Twiggy, the waterskiing squirrel whose aquatic antics have been captured in glorious high-definition thanks to a GoPro camera.

Twiggy showed off her skills at this summer’s X-Games, which are usually reserved for…well…actual people.

But it’s 2015, and we don’t discriminate against squirrel-kind anymore, so here’s the epic footage for your viewing pleasure:

The footage was shot on a GoPro Hero4, which is the company’s most recent action camera.

GoPro’s had to face competition from an unlikely contender recently however, as British mobile network EE launched its own action camera.

The twist with EE’s entry however, is that it offers livestreaming over your 4G connection.
