Was he going clubbing, or perhaps on his way to Joe’s Stone Crab?

Nah, this alligator was simply miles from home when he was found on a jetty in Miami Beach.

Alligators can survive for brief periods in saltwater, but they are freshwater animals; somehow, the 6-foot-gator was lost miles from home.

Florida Fish and Wildlife and Miami Beach Police were called out, and the former made multiple attempts to capture the gator from the pier but failed. But thanks to the help of some bystanders, the reptile was pulled out of the water and turned over to an alligator trapper.

Thankfully, no one was injured on the beach during the rescue.
