This little creature might look in deadly danger but he's just catching a lift - in his mum's mouth!

The caiman - which looks remarkably like a crocodile - often travels round this way after first being hatched, and this amazing shot was taken in Santa Fe, Argentina, where they live.

Pretty soon, he'll be too much of a mouthful to be carried around, as they usually reach 11ft when they're fully grown.

But for now, he can keep travelling in the jaws of safety!
