KEY LARGO, Fla. (FOX 13) - It's not unusual to see an alligator or crocodile swimming in a canal in South Florida but it's definitely unusual to see a crocodile swimming by on a pool noodle.
Victor Perez snapped the photo of a crocodile floating along on a pool noodle in Key Largo earlier this month.
"We see crocs from time to time in our canal but never ever one on a noodle..." Perez told FOX 13. "He could have been from up north on vacation just chilling."
The National Weather Service in Key West shared the photo saying, "Yes, that is a crocodile on a noodle. Even they know to 'Play It Safe' when heading into the water!"
While alligators are far more common in Florida, a breed of crocs called the American crocodile is found in South Florida and even as far north as Tampa.
