A Florida HOME has hit the market – but it’s hiding a catchy secret.
Someone was installing new blinds in the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home when they found a 12-foot alligator.
Video footage shows the reptile lying on the floor of the house on the morning of March 14.
The crews were forced to remove the gates from Charlotte County, home and bring in a trapper to fight over the reptile.
Matthew Goodwin was on hand when the incident unfolded.
“The blind installer located the alligator before everyone arrived,” Goodwin, the site supervisor, told Click Orlando.
“He then informed the construction manager, David Davis, and he in turn called me. I was busy and didn’t want to go, it was Monday, and he said it was more important than what I was doing and that I had to come here.
“I went to look in my house and there was the 12 foot alligator!”
The alligator can be seen hiding in a corner of the house.
The crews carefully removed the giant glass doors to reach the creature.
Then the trapper worked to engage with the alligator, eventually dragging it out of the house and onto the beach.
The alligator is seen on the video doing what’s called a “death roll” as it exits the house.
It is believed that the reptile found its way into the house via the laundry room.
The alligator caused damage estimated at $2,500 to the home.
