The animal kingdom is infiltrating our world. Well, trying to.
Following the appearance of a rogue kangaroo at a pharmacy in Melbourne airport last week, an alligator has made an attempt to go shopping in Walmart.
The six-foot-long beast slithered right up to the doors of the Apopka, Florida store on Sunday morning.
Apparently undecided, he stayed there for some time, loitering in the doorway as a small crowd gathered around him.
Eventually, staff locked the automatic doors of the store to prevent him from getting in.

Customer Robin Watkins told WKMG Local 6 (from the safety of her car): “It was a nice sized ‘gator, just chillin’.”
Staff called police and a trapper was summed – but not before the alligator took matters into his own claws and scuttled off into the undergrowth.
Watkins added: “It was neat to see but I’m glad they locked the doors because I had my child with me.”
Fish and wildlife officers were expected to search for the animal on Sunday to determine if it needs to be relocated, WFTV reports.
