This story sounds like a script from the Science Fiction shows "The Twilight Zone" if it was not real. Rob Carver who lives in Sarasota Florida on Friday had the shock of his life when he saw an 11 foot alligator who was inside his swimming pool. Carver thought a burglar was trying to break into his home. He was shocked to see an alligator inside his pool. Carver then called the Florida Fish And Wildlife Conservation to trap the alligator and take him out of his home. The alligator was then taken away but where did the alligator went remains a mystery since the alligator could be taken to the a farm, zoo or an exhibit. What makes this story interesting is that alligators when they see water, they will travel to the site even it is just a swimming pool.

I'm definitely glad that there are no alligators up here. I would not want to find one in my backyard, or my front yard.

I do not blame you since alligator are like dogs. If you get into their turf, they will harm you and me.

@Deepizzaguy It is true. Although I do like dogs more so. Alligators are just scary, while dogs can have a friendly side.

I don't think I would want to live in Florida or the states that have alligators, I would be afraid to have a pool

@Deepizzaguy Right, don't think I would want to run into one. Can you imagine if they are in the city areas like that, you could be walking down the street in the dark and have one come out thats looking for water. Too scary for me

He probably entered through an open door in the home.

The alligator was huge according to Rob even though he admitted he has seen larger ones.

That is true since he would not have survived swimming next to a gator.
