Twiggy the water-skiing squirrel is hanging up its skis after nearly 40 years.

The famous animal act made its final aquatic appearance at the X-Games in Minneapolis last weekend.

Over the years, there have actually been eight Twiggys, the current one is 10 years-old.

Twiggy's owner put the act together after her husband drowned as a way to promote water safety and importance of wearing life jackets.
