A couple found an alligator sleeping under their car.

John Schindler said his wife were getting ready to leave Eagles Point Apartments in Tampa, Florida, when they spotted the large reptile napping under their motor.

The pair eventually managed to persuade the alligator to move along but it took them, an apartment manager and the maintenance supervisor 30 minutes to shift the animal.

The foursome tried to encourage the creature to move to the nearby waterway and was last seen making its way to Lettuce Lake Park, which is known for housing alligators.

According to, it's quite common to find a reptile of that size snoozing under cars as they use it for shade.
