Everyone wants to stay safe when they’re taking a dip in the water — even crocodiles, it seems.
After a photo of the world’s most anxious (I’m assuming) crocodile using a pool noodle in the Florida Keys was posted on Instagram, local news outlets have been marveling at this unusual sight.
“Crock on a float,” reads Victor F. Perez’s concise Instagram caption.
Perez reportedly snapped a photo of the crocodile in Key Largo earlier this month, when he spotted it near the 105.5 mile marker in Bayside, according to Perez’s comments on his Instagram post.
“We see crocs from time to time in our canal but never ever one on a noodle…” Perez told FOX 13.
In a comment on his Instagram post, Perez said that he only ever sees crocodiles in canals, never in the bays of Key Largo.
Crocodiles can be found in north and south Florida and can on occasion be found further inland on the southeast coast — where the Keys are located — thanks to Florida’s canal systems, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
