A couple got a movement notification on their driveway camera - and logged in to spot an alligator.
The huge reptile trigged the motion-activated camera and appeared to be sauntering across the lawn in front of the house, at 5:13 A.M.
Maria Dimapelis, from Mount Dora, Florida, spotted the 5ft creature while she was on a cruise ship in Alaska, on August 11.
“We were on a cruise ship in Alaska when we received a notification from our home security system that our camera detected an animal," she said.
“I informed my husband and we both opened our security apps – to our surprise, the camera showed an alligator crawling at the front of our garage door.
“I felt so scared knowing that an alligator could be around my house.
“We have a small lake in our community – but I have not seen an alligator in our area.”
