ISLAMORADA: A crocodile apparently decided a morning dip in a Florida Keys swimming pool was just the thing.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin says an Islamorada homeowner called about 7:30 a.m. Thursday to report the croc in his pool. A photo provided by the sheriff’s office shows the large reptile floating languidly in the shallow end of the pool. Herrin said the animal was about 8 feet long.
Herrin says deputies and officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission safely removed the animal and returned it to its native habitat.
