Ratatouille the snowboarding opossum a natural on camera

Ratatouille Bowers can be seen showing off his board skills at the Liberty Ski Resort in Emmitsburg in the US, and it is certainly a sight to behold.

After proffering his 2011 to 2012 ski pass, the video then shows the snow-loving marsupial setting off at quite a rate of knots while wearing his trademark green stripy jumper.

Even when the board begins to pick up further pace, Ratatouille still keeps as ice-cool as the snow on which he rides. He even manages to find time in his busy boarding schedule to pose for pictures.

The one-minute video has attracted a great deal of interest with one internet viewer risking his partner's wrath by posting: 'That guy's a better snowboarder than my girlfriend.'

Clearly the whole ordeal didn't faze Mr Bowers, as the cute boarder let out a sizable yawn prior to the ski expedition that was captured on film.

Another posted commented: 'Nice. It looks like he's actually carving in a few shots! Little shredder!'
However, Ratatouille isn't the first opossum to be thrust into the internet limelight.

In 2011, a video of Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum gained hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube.

Unfortunately, the overweight and sick animal had to be put down in a zoo in Leipzig, Germany, in September of last year.
