"12-Foot Alligator Caught Blocking Planes at Air Force Base Returns to Cause Chaos After Relocation"

A giant, curious alligator visited a Florida Air Force base for the second time this season.

On May 15, the over 12-foot reptile was spotted near the 6th Medical Group hospital at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., a few weeks after the wild animal was caught blocking planes by lazing around the base's tarmac and relocated.

MacDill shared a photo on Facebook from the alligator's second visit. In the shot, the animal lies on a sidewalk near the medical facility.

The base, which nicknamed the visiting reptile "Airman Ally Gator," joked in the post's caption, "Airman Gator will be in charge of MacDill's complaint department and is ready to book your appointment below."

On a more serious note, the base included a safety reminder in the post, advising those on the base to steer clear of the alligator if they spot him.

When diagnosed I bought champagne!
I finally knew why people were strange.
