A Charlotte County, Florida woman has some explaining to do after she pulled a live alligator out of her pants during a traffic stop.

The unnamed woman was pulled over for unspecified reasons earlier in the day and when the deputies asked her if she had anything else on her, she replied by retrieving an alligator from her pants — because it is Florida.

Upon further search of her vehicle, it was discovered that she had 41 three-striped mud turtles in her vehicle. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has taken over the investigation.
