That’s when the startled raccoon decidely boarded the gator’s back. Mr. Jones apparently had his camera in tow and and was lucky enough to capture this once-in-a-lifetime image.

First there was Weaselpecker. Now meet Gatorcoon.  

When this amateur photographer went walking through Ocala National Forest in Florida, he came across something quite odd.

Richard Jones, who was out in the forest with his family, spotted a raccoon riding on the back of an alligator.

Mr Jones said he believed the raccoon had leapt aboard the alligator after being startled by his son taking a picture of the reptile.

He said he ‘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.’

Oh, and and in case you missed it, here’s that weasel riding a woodpecker.
