FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. -- The sight of an alligator making himself right at home is common in Florida.  However it still turns heads when it happens on the beach.

Fox 4 viewer Bill Teed sent these pictures into the newsroom of an alligator being captured by a trapper on Saturday morning.

Gators usually prefer fresh water, but can sometimes venture into salt water for short periods of time.
