So, apparently an ALLIGATOR was found swimming in the OCEAN!

Yeah, it was in Florida where alligators are basically like people's pets (they're always hanging out in their backyards like it's no big deal?!) but still, alligators + beaches = NO FUN!

Someone spotted something floating nearby and identified it as an alligator which led to everyone RACING to get back to shore.

After lifeguards got everyone out of the water, the alligator disappeared not to be seen again.

Hopefully this doesn't mean it traveled a little further up the coast to our beautiful Jersey Shore!!! (LOL, just a joke!)
