(NBC/WUFT) — Some students at the University of Florida got a surprise visit from an alligator as they were enjoying a lakeside picnic last Wednesday.
While they were taking pictures an alligator strolled up to the picnic blanket, made itself right at home on their picnic blanket and grabbed a sandwich. A bystander managed to get video and gave it to television station WUFT.
After the gator finished eating everyone managed to shoo the reptile back into the lake.
Experts say everyone at the scene did the right thing for the most part, by not trying to rescue their lunch, and let the gator have what it wanted.
