People Recording Animals In Aquarium Stunned To See Turtle Hitch A Ride On Crocodile!

Sometimes, I watch my dog and wonder why she does some of the things she does. I may never fully understand her! Some visitors to the Bronx Zoo in New York City witnessed something they may never fully understand either! The best part of it all is that the unusual event was captured on video and now the rest of us can be just as perplexed as they were!

Check it out! A large turtle decides to hitch a ride on the back of a gharial crocodile. Unbelievable – right? The alligator twists and speeds through the water as if trying to get the turtle off, but the turtle manages to hang on for a little while. My question is – was the crocodile sleeping when the turtle climbed on?

Take a look at this video!

You would think he could have prevented the whole thing by not letting the slow moving turtle get attached!
