Tanto Yensen/Solent News & Photo Agency
These two sneaky snails decided to crawl up onto this dumpy tree frog's head. Sort of makes it look like Princess Leia from Star Wars... don't you think? Tanto Yensen grabbed this photo of his pet in Jakarta, Indonesia when the two snails began climbing on the frog like they wanted to play!
This woodpecker certainly looks surprised to have a weasel on his back! Amateur photographer Martin Le-May snapped the woodpecker riding weasel in a park in Essex. Unfortunately though Martin thinks the weasel was trying to hurt the woodpecker but also said "I think we may have distracted the weasel as when the woodpecker landed, it managed to escape and the weasel ran into the grass."
Here's something you don't see everyday, a monkey riding around on the back of a goat! And it looks like the goat is pretty cool about the whole thing. The unusual duo were found on a farm in Yichun city in China. Local wildlife experts said they would take the monkey to the zoo before releasing it into the wild when it got bigger.
Here is a raccoon who obviously likes a little bit of danger in his life! A man in Florida captured this strange image of a raccoon riding an alligator when out walking with his family. The photographer said after he took the photo, the raccoon jumped off and the alligator disappeared into the water. A lucky escape for this raccoon or maybe he does this all the time!
COLUMBUS ZOO AND AQUARIUM, GRAHM S. JONES
Ok, so the puppy isn't exactly a hitchhiker but who cares, they're too cute not to include! 10-week-old cheetah cub, Emmett and 7-week-old puppy, Cullen, met at Columbus zoo and quickly became furry friends. Cheetahs can be quite nervous animals and Zoo staff thought Emmett needed a buddy and this happy puppy seemed the perfect choice. Cats and dogs don't normally get along but these didn't let that get in the way of them becoming best friends.
