    After 39 years of traveling the country to put on shows featuring squirrels on water skis, Lou Ann Best is calling it quits. That means Sarasota’s Suncoast Boat Show, might just be your last chance to see Twiggy. Twiggy got her start back in 1978, when Chuck and Lou Ann Best found a squirrel blown out of its nest. Chuck had recently purchased a remote-control boat for the couple’s daughter, and on a whim, he taught the squirrel to waterski behind it. Suddenly in possession of a waterskiing squirrel, the couple began hitting the boat show circuit with the squirrel. As her fame increased, Twiggy began accepting offers to make guest appearances in movies, commercials, and music videos. Although Chuck has since died, Lou Ann continues to tour with Twiggy and she talks about the importance of wearing a life jacket and learning how to float and swim.Find out when to see Twiggy in action here.
