Remember that photo of a weasel riding on a woodpeckers back that went viral earlier this year? A similarly strange wildlife shot has emerged, and this one is making the rounds on the Web as well. It’s a bizarre photo of a raccoon riding on the back of an alligator in a river. 


According to reports, a man says he snapped a picture of a raccoon on top of an alligator in the Ocala National Forest . This raccoon in Florida is making headlines for using an alligator as its own personal surfboard — though whether or not this actually happened is still up for debate.


The photo spread quickly around the web, thanks to social media. The act is funny and would not be the first time a furry critter has used another member of the animal kingdom for transportation.
