Real gator watches while boy uses inflatable gator

National News

ORLANDO, Fla. (KXAN/NBC) — A small alligator kept a close eye on what it might’ve thought was long-lost cousin being thrown around by a child in his backyard. 

But the gator probably eventually realized the green thing was an inflatable gator instead of a real reptile. 

Nicole Mojica was filming her son using the inflatable gator on a slip-and-slide at their Orlando, Fla. home, but little did they know that there was a gator behind them, watching them. 

It turns out the real gator wanted to join in on the fun because the family says it ran down the slip-and-slide shortly after Mojica stopped recording. In a Facebook post, Mojica said the family ran away when they spotted the gator.
