Florida is a weird and wonderful place.

This is your standard ‘man walks through public park that’s filled with alligators’ story but there’s a wonderful twist.

What happens when a guy startles a raccoon to such an extent that the furry critter scampers towards a river?

The answer is one of the best pictures that we’ve seen in a long time. Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy has nothing on this guy.

It’s impressive alright, but is it as good as this?
