Apparently, an inflatable alligator pool float purchased by a family vacationing in Florida looked a little too real -- at least to an actual alligator.
Georgia resident Dave Jacobs and his family were staying at an Airbnb rental home when they first spotted the real-life alligator in a nearby lake. The gator must have taken a liking to the family, because the following day, they found the same alligator in their swimming pool -- lounging atop its inflatable doppelganger, Jacobs says.
After attempts to coax the creature away from its newfound friend failed, the owner of the property called in a wrangler, who managed to separate the two gators and get the real one back to its home. "I guess it's not that unusual, but it was unusual to me," Jacobs says.
