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.
