A Palm Bay, FL, police officer was recently trying to take a "selfie" and was photobombed by an alligator crawling out of a storm drain.

"At least he (the gator) smiled, the department said on Facebook.

"The theory is that this fella probably found his way into the sewer drain and got himself stuck pretty good. Palm Bay PD Dispatch called FWC who sent out a trapper to safely remove our new friend," the agency reported.
