Now here’s something you definitely don’t see every day: a raccoon riding an alligator, surfboard-style!
Richard Jones and his family were out for a nice hike along Florida’s Oaklawaha River when his son disturbed a raccoon. Evidently startled, the animal quickly stumbled towards the water and hopped on a nearby alligator, possibly mistaking it for a log. Thanks to Richard’s lightning-quick shutter finger, the raccoon’s amazing feat was captured for posterity. And thanks to the raccoon’s excellent reflexes, it was able to quickly scurry back into safety.
