A three-foot alligator was found swimming in a motel pool in Atlantic City, New Jersey, last Tuesday morning.
CBS Philadelphia reports that cops were called to Bayview Inn & Suites in the early hours after the reptile decided to take a walk from nearby Lakes Bay to take a splash in the new surroundings.
The Atlantic City Police Department posted a photo of the unusual hotel guest on Facebook.
They captioned it: "We get requests, and try to fulfil them. Here is a picture of our new pet alligator found in a local motel pool. He/she will be safely removed."
No one was hurt and the alligator has now been taken to Cape May County Zoo.

Justin Calhoun, a 24-year-old exotic dancer from Tampa, Florida, is being held by cops after Mark Brann, 67, was attacked, WTVJ reports.
Calhoun who claims he was dating Brann, who is 43 years his senior said in his defence that the latter grabbed a gun after they erupted into a row.
According to the report, Calhoun attempted to shoot Brann with the gun after he swiped the weapon off him, but it failed to fire.
He then reportedly chose to grab the writing tool and shoved it in Brann's eyes, and it's also stated that he placed a piece of wood inside his mouth.
Brann was said to be in a critical condition and taken to a nearby hospital.
Calhoun was cuffed by police who had been called to the property and was arrested a little while later.
