This time of year, there are real advantages to living in South Florida; but there’s also a downside as discovered by one Florida Keys resident who found a crocodile in his backyard pool.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office posted a photo of the crocodile after responding to the call. The crocodile can be seen resting near the pool's steps before police and animal care officers returned the reptile to its natural habitat.

"Sheriff's Office and Fish and Wildlife officers worked together, and the crocodile was safely removed and returned to the ocean," a Monroe County sheriff's spokesperson told the Miami Herald.
