See ya later alligator! A little gator appears to be lost at a motel in Florida.

The critter was recorded by the Highlands County Sheriff's Office wondering around the Quality Inn motel.

The department wrote on Facebook that he might have just been looking for “the tiki bar" to get a margarita.

They also added, “He didn't look like he was old enough to drink and didn't appear to have any id in his alligator skin wallet.”

Thankful the wanderer was captured by a licensed trapper, but it’s true what the sheriff’s office wrote, "only in florida"!
