A Florida Keys resident received an interesting housewarming gift in his backyard Thursday morning.

After moving from Pennsylvania into a $6 million Florida Keys home less than a week ago, the man found an 8-foot-long American crocodile in his pool.

While local Fish and Wildlife officials were deciding what they wanted to do with the man’s visitor, the 8-foot croc decided his dip was over and strolled back into to the Atlantic Ocean. Check out the video below. 

This comes just four days after a Florida woman found a 5-foot-long blacktip shark in a condominium's pool. The shark was unfortunately in bad condition and most likely did not survive.
