Florida Man’s Bathroom Becomes Surprise Sanctuary for Five Alligators
Life in Florida can be a real wild ride, and this time it’s not because of the theme parks. It’s all about Robert Robinson from Saint Cloud, who decided that his bathroom was the perfect spot for five unexpected houseguests… Alligators!
Who in their right mind keeps alligators in the bathtub? Well, apparently, Robinson thought it was a fantastic idea. According to FOX35, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission got a tip about some juvenile gators living the high life in Robinson’s bathroom.
When officers arrived at the scene, they were met by Robinson’s neighbor on the front porch. That’s when they realized they were in for quite the surprise. Robinson, the man behind this unusual setup, readily admitted that, yes, he had alligators in his bathroom. He even gave them the green light to check it out. What did they find? A whopping five gators, enjoying a cozy bathtub staycation.
But don’t worry, the officers didn’t just stop there. They decided to give Robinson’s house the full “gator sweep” to ensure he wasn’t hiding any more reptilian friends. After confirming that the bathroom was the only alligator hotspot, they caught up with Robinson in person near his workplace.
What did Robinson have to say for himself? Well, he spilled the beans, revealing that he’d scooped up these gators from a nearby pond. As for how long he’d been playing host to these toothy creatures, it remains a mystery.
Of course, you can’t just keep alligators in your bathroom in Florida without consequences. Robinson was issued a citation and will have to make a mandatory court appearance. The gators, on the other hand, got a one-way ticket to Lake Tohopekaliga, which was probably a much-needed escape from the confines of a bathtub.
If you find yourself with an idea for home decor involving wildlife, it might be a good idea to think twice. Alligators in the bathroom? It could come back and bite you in the butt later.
