Raccoon Hitches An Unlikely Ride On An Alligator

A man from Florida captured an incredible picture of a raccoon hitching a ride on the back of an alligator. That’s right, an alligator.

Richard Jones took the snap while he and his family walked along the Oklawaha River in the Ocala National Forest.

He said that the raccoon must have been unsettled by the family and jumped on top of the alligator near the river bank.

The raccoon didn’t stay on the gator for long, that’s probably a good thing, as the little creature was lucky not to get snapped up by the alligator. However that’s definitely one way to travel.

“I snapped a lucky picture right when the gator slipped into the water and before the raccoon jumped off and scurried away.” He added, it was “definitely the photo of a lifetime.”
