Funny Picture Shows a Raccoon Hitching a Ride on Alligator’s Back





Richard Jones and his family were walking at Ocala National Forest in central Florida when a raccoon appearing to hitch a ride on the back of an alligator caught their attention.

Apparently, Richard’s son was attempting to capture images of the alligators but ended up startling a raccoon. In response, the tiny creature tottered into the water and found its way on the reptile’s back.

The funny picture snapped on Sunday morning quickly spread like wildfire in the Internet and has caught the imagination of social media users.

Speaking to local TV station WFTV,  Jones said: “I snapped a lucky picture right when the gator slipped into the water and before the raccoon jumped off and scurried away.”

“Without the context you’d think the raccoon was hitching a ride across the river. Pretty amazing,” he added.

Who knows, this brilliant photo may  inspire Disney to come up with a movie starring these creatures.
