Knock knock: gator shows up at Wesley Chapel door

An unwelcome guest came a-knocking at the door of a home in Wesley Chapel.

It happened at the Ashton Oaks subdivision.

Jennifer Serrano Lyle said there was a knock at the door around 2:30 in the morning Tuesday and she thought someone was trying to break in. It turned out there was an alligator standing there and it was hissing at them when she and her husband opened the door.

Lyle said the tail of the alligator must have been thrashing at the door, which sounded like knocking.

It took about 20 minutes before the alligator found its way out of the hallway. "He just vanished!" Lyle said.

Lyle said she's lived there since 1980 and has never experienced that before.

WATCH:

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

Our current situation. This dude freaked me out! Guess he wanted to come in for a night cap....Lived here since 1980 and never had one knock at the front door with its tail! Thank goodness it wasn't a burglar as I initially thought. Of course the hubbs was calm, cool and collected while I was panicked in the background. We shortly closed the door and let him go on his merry way. What a night! Be careful with you pets and lil ones guys! ???? #WesleyChapel #Flliving #Gators#AshtonOaks #Alligators #Safety #Wildlife
