While Uber is typically used by humans, it appears animals might have their own version down on Kiawah Island. 

The Kiawah Island Conservancy posted a photo of an alligator on top of a turtle to Twitter on Thursday garnering plenty of retweets and likes.

There is really no reason the alligator is on top of the turtle, according to South Carolina Department of Natural Resources spokesman David Lucas. The two animals live in the same type of habitat. He suggested the alligator might have believed the turtle was a rock. 

Alligators have been known to eat turtles and Lucas added that if the alligator was a mature adult, the chances it would have eaten the turtle are pretty good.
