(Newser) – A woman in Brazil discovered a 5-foot alligator in her apartment—when she saw her 3-year-old petting it on the head. The toothy reptile entered the woman's home and crawled behind her sofa after heavy rains flooded her yard. Fortunately, authorities say the 'gator was not hungry at the time, so did not attack anyone. The animal was captured then released in a less populated part of town, reports the BBC. (Gators have been spotted in NYC, too...)
