For 39 years, a series of well-trained squirrels have been showing audiences what a rodent can really do.

Best and her squirrels have made thousands of appearances over the years, delighting audiences and teaching water safety to kids. “It’s very hard to stop because Twiggy makes a difference,” she told local Florida station WTSP. Here, a look back at Twiggy through the years.
