Is it just our imagination or are animals getting sportier? First there was Twiggy, the water-skiing squirrel, then came Goatee, the surfing goat and now, Ratatouille the snowboarding opossum.

Nobody knows who this bushy-tailed marsupial that sported a ski pass with the name Ratatouille Bowers belongs to or, how it learnt these fabulous snowboarding skills. What is obvious though is that this sweater-wearing opossum loves to show off its skills and pose for the cameras.

As you can imagine, Ratatouille, who was filmed in action by the staff members of the Liberty Ski Resort in Carrol Valley, PA, has become an overnight sensation, garnering over one million views since the video was put on YouTube on March 7th, 2012.
