Can you spot the gator? An Orlando family had no idea they were enjoying a day in their backyard and being watched by an alligator just feet away from them. 

Some alligators look for love in all the wrong places; gator mating season is heating up

Nicole Mojica recorded her son playing on a slip and slide with a blow up gator, when in reality, a real gator was just a few feet away watching the boy cool off in the Florida heat. 

Watch the video and see if you can spot the gator nearby. 




Mojica posted the video on her Facebook page with the caption, "Can you spot the real gator? He sees us for sure!! Look closely.... OMG!!! It ran down my slip and slide! Please Share for Awareness. They are every where now."

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warns Florida residents that May and June are typically mating season for alligators. During this time, gators may be out and spotted more frequently.
