Meanwhile in Florida, a Raccoon is Riding on top of an Alligator

There's a joke in here somewhere!

Richard Jones of Palatka, Florida, and his family were walking along the Oaklawaha River in the Ocala National Forest, when he spotted a racoon on top of an alligator.

Jones told WFTV that his son had startled a raccoon, which stumbled into the water and hopped on top of the alligator nearby. "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."
