Just when you thought Florida’s housing market couldn’t get any scarier.
A worker putting the finishing touches on a new home in the Fort Myers area this month spotted a gigantic 12-foot alligator loitering in the master bedroom. according to the Miami Herald.
A window blind installer spotted the reptile and hastily called in professional trappers to remove it.
Video, taken at the Babcock Ranch residence — where homes fetch more than $1.5 million apiece — shows two men struggling to yank the alligator out of the home with a rope.
The excited reptile rolls over several times during combat before finally being removed.
Project manager Matthew Goodwin told McClatchy News that the alligator was likely looking for some indoor warmth during a cold spell of weather and was caught.
Goodwin said the reptile made sure to taste every nook and cranny in the house before settling in the master bedroom.
“He went into every room and his mark,” Goodwin said, according to the outlet.
