Alligators do not generally have a reputation for being chilled out but this one is clearly not concerned about that.
The giant reptile was seen surfing on the back of a manatee in a canal in Jacksonville, Florida, without a care in the world.
Whether it was out for a thrill ride or was just feeling lazy, the alligator’s actions are not exactly common.
Dana Menk, who shared the picture on Facebook, told The Dodo: “Took me a minute to realise what I was seeing.
”In 40-plus years of living in Florida, it was a first for me.”
The pair apparently moved along the water for about 100ft before separating – and it may have been the manatee who wanted the hook-up in the first place.
Dana added: “I’ve seen manatees scratch their back on kayaks and structures, so who knows, maybe she was getting a back scratch.”
The picture was described by some commenters as “the most Florida picture ever”.
