I live in a large city, and I don't own a car. As such, I rely on public transportation to get everywhere. While I generally like the idea of relying on public transport and my own two feet to get around, it's also totally awesome to have the rare opportunity to hitch a ride with someone else.
At first glance, the photo below appears to be a raccoon hitching a ride on a log on the water. If you look closer, you'll notice that his ride is actually a little more dangerous: Little dude is actually cruising on top of an alligator.
A man named Richard Jones took the photo after he scared the raccoon out of the brush. It made for a pretty hilarious photograph, and luckily, the raccoon made it on and off the alligator unscathed.
