HOUSTON, Texas (KXAN) — Animals coming out of the wood work after a flood is pretty normal. However, having an alligator making itself at home in a living room is pretty unusual.

On Friday, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable tweeted out a photo of an alligator in a home that was flooded near Lake Houston in east Houston. The constable’s office says the gator will be delivered back to its natural habitat soon.

Meanwhile, in the Beaumont-area, Texas Game Wardens and DPS troopers came together to get a handle on a 12-foot alligator. They were able to secure it and relocate it to a less populated area.
