ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA (KRON) — Humans are not the only ones hunkering down as Hurricane Matthew batters Florida. A stork has apparently found refuge in a zoo bathroom.

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park shared a photo of a marabou stork inside a bathroom at the facility. The zoo’s Facebook page jokes in the caption, “no species discrimination in this bathroom!”

The stork is not the only animal taking cover from the storm. The zoo also shared photos on their Facebook page of young alligators swimming indoors in plastic tubs and other birds walking around freely inside a building.

The zoo has moved all of its birds and mammals inside.
