A worker, installing window blinds in a new home in March, came face to face with a 12-foot alligator loitering in the master bedroom, according to the Miami Herald.

The home where the reptilian squatter set up shop is in Babcock Rank community, in Fort Myers, Florida.

It’s believed the alligator was seeking shelter from a cold front and found a laundry room door to crawl through, project manager Matthew Goodwin told McClatchy News.

“The wind closed the door and he was trapped. He went into every room and made his mark,” Goodwin said, noting he was called by a construction manager to come see something “important.”



The agitated reptile can be seen rolling over several times during the struggle before finally being removed.

As you can see in the video, the gator was removed and was unharmed in the relocation.
