A family in Sarasota, Florida was enjoying their Memorial Day holiday before unexpectedly discovering something very frightening in their pool. This would be extremely terrifying!

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office shared the information on Facebook Monday afternoon. The post is going viral with roughly 3,000 reactions, 5,000 shares, and 2,000 comments. The post states:

“Luckily, these homeowners took a second look this morning before jumping in to kick off their Memorial Day...”

The family discovered an 8-foot alligator in their swimming pool. Thankfully, they noticed him before hopping in the pool and everyone ended the day safely, even the gator. Officers reported he was taken to a ‘safer and more appropriate location’.

Watch the video below to see the gator:
