Florida man snaps picture of raccoon riding a gator in Ocala National Forest

OCALA, Fla. — (WFTV) - A Palatka man’s son was able to quickly take an amazing photo of a raccoon riding on top of an alligator in the Ocala National Forest Saturday morning.

Richard Jones told WFTV in Orlando that he and his family were walking along the Oklawaha River watching alligators when his son walked through palm fronds to get a good picture.

Jones told WFTV that his son must have startled the raccoon, which he said then stumbled toward the water and hopped on top of the gator that was near the water’s edge.
