Police were called to Bayview Inn & Suites in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Tuesday morning after a baby gator was found swimming in the motel's pool.

CBS Philadelphia reports that cops were called to Bayview Inn & Suites in the early hours after the reptile decided to take a walk from nearby Lakes Bay to take a splash in the new surroundings.

The Atlantic City Police Department posted a photo of the unusual hotel guest on Facebook.

They captioned it: "We get requests and try to fulfil them. Here is a picture of our new pet alligator found in a local motel pool. He/she will be safely removed."

No one was hurt and the alligator has now been taken to Cape May County Zoo.
