    One Florida crocodile used its noodle while lounging in a Key Largo canal on August 6.

    Instead of thrashing about the water to stay afloat, the reptile found a yellow pool noodle to relax on.

    Victor Perez caught the only-in-Florida moment on camera, posting the photo on his Instagram page.

    “Crock on a float,” he wrote in the caption.

    The National Weather Service in Key West commended the croc’s adherence to safety.

    “Yes. Yes, that is a crocodile on a noodle,” the organization tweeted. “Even they know to #PlayItSafe when heading into the water!”

    Perez said he spotted the crocodile in mile marker 105.5.

    We probably won’t see another sight like this for a while…crocodile.
