A photo shared by a casino resort in Lake Charles has gone viral after it shows an alligator in its swimming pool.

Luckily the alligator in the pool was not a large one, but still, it was an alligator.

The casino reports in their social media post that this does not happen often, but still imagine getting into this pool and not seeing the unwanted guest.

The small gator was ultimately removed from the pool and relocated to another "water hole" where it could swim as much as it desired.

This is the third story this week on an alligator coming into close contact with someone, therefore just be aware of your surroundings as temperatures in south Louisiana begin to rise.

Now, take a look at this small gator enjoying its best life in the pool in Lake Charles, and one more thing, do you think its mother is close by?
