It makes for a pretty great photo.

While people are fleeing coastal cities in the United States in response to Hurricane Matthew, the many animals living in zoos and theme parks in Florida need a safe space to hide, as well.

Much like this stork.

This little guy was housed in a bathroom at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park, and he isn't the only one taking advantage of a dry place to stay.

“Every bird and mammal is housed safely indoors, all venomous snakes are double contained (at least), tortoises and crocs are in various tubs and the storks are hanging out in the public restrooms! We love our animals and staff, the park shared on its Facebook page. “Take care everyone and be careful.”
