Seeing an alligator in Florida isn’t too out of the norm, but catching the scaly reptile lounging on an alligator pool float at an Airbnb -- that’s quite the sight.
Georgia resident Dave Jacobs and his family spotted a gator hanging out on an alligator-shaped pool float at an Airbnb in South Miami, the Miami New-Times reported.
The family first spotted the gator in the lake outside of their vacation rental on Saturday, Jacobs said.
The gator seemed to be teasing their dog, Rascal, who spent the day barking and running around the screened-in pool deck.
“We thought that was pretty cute,” Jacobs said. “Then, the next day, it just showed up in the pool.”
After contacting the Airbnb’s owner, wildlife management was called, and a wrangler removed the reptile from the pool.
Alligators courtship begins in early April and mating season occurs in May or June, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation.
