    An alligator was caught on camera using a crosswalk in Flagler County, in northern Florida, Monday morning.

    According to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office, the gator was spotted in the bushes near the intersection at Cypress Point Parkway and Cypress Edge Drive in Palm Coast.

    FCSO Cpl. Kenny Goncalves said the gator was more than 5 feet long. It was sitting by the crosswalk and suddenly scampered across the roadway in the crosswalk.

    "He just walked in the crosswalk like it was normal," Cpl. Goncalves said.

    Officers stopped traffic to allow the gator to cross, which they said took about 30 seconds.

    A trapper from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was called, but before his arrival the gator went to a wooded lot and back to its natural habitat.
