An alligator pretending to be a doormat was spotted on a Louisiana porch Friday afternoon, resting behind a potted plant and some running shoes, reports. 

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to the home because the reptile was blocking the front door. 

Deputies snapped a photo of the gator as they waited on trappers to arrive and remove it from the property.

“Just another day in the life of a St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy,” the agency said in a Facebook post, adding, “Always look before you step.”
