A HOME in Florida has hit the market – but it’s hiding a snappy secret.
Someone was installing new blinds at the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home when they found a 12-foot alligator.
Video footage shows the reptile laying on the floor of the home on the morning of March 14.
Crews were forced to remove the doors from the Charlotte County, home and bring a trapper in to wrangle the reptile.
Matthew Goodwin was on site when the incident unfolded.
“The window blind installer located the gator before everyone arrived,” Goodwin, the construction site supervisor, told Click Orlando.

“He then told the construction manager David Davis, and he in turn, called me over. I was busy and didn’t want to go, it was Monday, and he stated this is more important than what I was doing and to get over here.
“I go look in my house and there was the 12-foot gator!”
The gator can be seen hiding out in a corner of the home.
Crews carefully took off the giant glass doors to reach the creature.

Então, the trapper worked to engage with the gator, ultimately dragging it out of the home and onto the beach.
The gator is seen on the video doing what’s known as a “death roll” as it makes its way out of the house.
It is believed the reptile found its way into the home via the laundry room.
The gator caused an estimated $2,500 in damages to the home.
