These Fluffy Raccoons Would Love to Clean Your Dishes

Well this isn't something you see every day.

Much like the video above, raccoon's have been the talk of the town lately. First we have a raccoon who is eager to clean some dishes. If only everyone was like that. Now, we have a picture worth 1,000 words, if not more.

In the pic below, you see a raccoon crossing the Florida waters. But look a bit closer.



That raccoon hopped aboard the alligator express! Snapped by Richard Jones of Florida, he told NBC affiliate WFTV that it was something that would "only happen in Florida."

Jones mentioned to WFTV that he believes he and his family must have startled the little guy, because as soon as he saw them, he jumped onto his alligator friend and rode off in the distance.

"I 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. Pretty amazing. Definitely the photo of a lifetime," Jones said in an email to WFTV.

This is certainly not something you see everyday, so remember, if you are out walking near the Ocklawaha River in the Ocala National Forest in Florida, be sure to have a camera handy; who knows what you'll see next. But please, let the meme's begin!

And if that wasn't hilarious enough, check out these surfing animals below.

***EXCLUSIVE*** DEL MAR DOG BEACH, CA - UNDATED: AUGUST CALENDAR IMAGE: Gus is a 2 year old English Bulldog who was adopted in March 2011. He took his first surfing lesson in July 2011 at Del Mar Dog Beach and proved to be a natural. Gus is looking forward to next years surfing season. Rather than begging their owners for walkies these extreme dogs prefer to catch a wave as this barking mad charity calendar shows. The beach bum mutts were captured taking to the surf on dog-friendly beaches near San Diego in the US. All the surfing dogs have lifejackets and the calendars producer, Dina Demeo-Grover, confirmed that if the surf gets too much for them the pooches were free to hop off the board and swim back to shore. However, most were having so much fun posing on their surf boards they could not wait for another chance to ride a wave. All money raised from the calendar goes to a variety of charities, whose work includes animal rescue, childrens welfare and aid for senior citizens.
