Or just lazy. :wink: Everyone knows that alligators inhabit a large part of the South, but not many know that there is a fairly large population of crocodiles in the Florida Everglades also. They get pretty big too, up to 18' or so and over 1000lbs. Here's one recently spotted using a pool noodle for a little extra flotation. :shock:

A crocodile had a little support while crossing a canal in Key Largo, Fla., earlier this month — a yellow pool noodle.

The creature was caught on camera resting on the pool noodle as it swam across the water near mile marker 105 of the Overseas Highway, a 113-mile road that runs through the Florida Keys.

"I saw the croc off my balcony swimming up the canal," local Victor Perez told Fox News on Wednesday. "My first thought was, 'What happened to the person that was on the noodle?'"

At first, Perez said he didn't see the large reptile. The floating device appeared to be drifting away in the water behind his home.
