Florida woman pulls alligator from her pants during traffic stop


A Florida woman pulled a small alligator out of her pants during a traffic stop Monday morning, authorities said.

The unidentified woman showed an officer the reptile when asked, “Do you have anything else?” There were also 42 striped mud turtles and one softshell turtle in the woman’s vehicle when she was pulled over on a highway in Punta Gorda, some 100 miles south of Tampa, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was called to the scene to investigate.
