Alligator enjoys afternoon chillin’ on pool float at Miami Airbnb

A family from Georgia faced quite the unusual experience this week when they spotted an alligator lounging on a pool float at their South Miami Airbnb.

According to the Miami New Times, David Jacobs and his family had been in town for a wedding and spotted the gator half asleep on a huge alligator pool float. Just the day before, the gator had been seen outside of the rental seemingly taunting the family dog who from the safety of the screened-in porch, barked at the gator.

Wildlife management arrived  and were able to capture the alligator out of the pool. It is currently mating season and there has been considerable more activity lately.

Although the family has seen alligators in Georgia, they are not as prevalent as in Florida and less likely to roam anywhere there are humans.

We can only hope the alligator was freed in an area friendly to the reptiles. Sounds like this guy earned a break.

    Too many people in the world and in my opinion whatever happens is always the fault of people who consider themselves above wildlife instead of trying to coexist. The article did not note that the gator was floating on a gator raft which I found very amusing.
