Alligator Relaxes Atop A Family’s Alligator Raft That Was Left In Their Pool

A family came home from the stores to meet a very strange sight in their pool. A huge alligator had taken over the pool and was relaxing on their inflatable alligator raft.

The Georgia family was vacationing in Florida when they met this strange sight.

David Jacobs said he and his family were staying at an Airbnb in South Miami and they first spotted an alligator taking an interest in their family dog Saturday.

The alligator did no harm to the dog though because the two animals were kept separate. But the reptile was not yet ready to leave the family alone.

The family said they had just gotten back from the stores on Sunday when they saw the same alligator lounging atop an inflatable alligator floating in the home’s backyard pool.

“My daughter, who’s 14, was like, ‘Dad, this is soooo meta,'” Jacobs told the Miami New Times.

Jacobs said his wife contacted the Airbnb’s owner, who called a wildlife trapper to relocate the reptile.

“We have gators in Georgia, but they’re just in areas that are not as populated, like some swamp where no one lives,” Jacobs said. “But in Florida, they’re just in your neighborhoods.”
