Real or not? Gator relaxes on gator raft in Florida pool


MIAMI, Fla. – A remarkable photo of an alligator kicking back and relaxing on, of all things, a gator float in South Florida is raising questions about whether it's legitimate.

David Jacobs of Georgia shared the photo with News4Jax sister station WPLG in Miami. Jacobs told the television station he was visiting for a wedding when he saw the unusual sight.

The sighting supposedly happened Sunday at a home Jacobs rented in Miami-Dade County. He said he called the homeowner, who notified a wildlife management company, which removed the gator.

News4Jax did a reverse image search through Google and couldn't find any duplicates of the photo, which suggests that the photo might actually be authentic. What do you think?
