It’s gator season again, and one Sarasota County homeowner found out the hard way.

Over the weekend, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office posted images of a gator found in a pool late Friday.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warns that the state’s estimated 1.3 million gators are becoming more active — and should be treated with “caution and respect.” There’ve been at least two other gator sightings in Suncoast yards recently, one mistaken for a burglar.

That gator that decided it needed to take a dip wasn’t a baby, either- it was measured at more than 11 feet long.
