Man Spots Alligator Strolling Through Empty Retail Park
With the majority of people following government advice to stay at home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, groups of wildlife have been spotted venturing into towns and cities.
Out in South Carolina, US, one man spotted an alligator minding its own business as it took a stroll through an abandoned retail park.
Clifford Sosis was at Barefoot Landing in Myrtle Beach last week when he came across the little fella, and decided to record his encounter.
Speaking from behind the camera, Clifford says: "It appears nature is already beginning to reclaim this little bit of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
"That is a real-life gator hanging out in the middle of this otherwise busy - or usually busy - shopping centre. I guess he is planning on going to Christmas Mouse. Pretty crazy."
But this isn't the first time animals have been seen enjoying the quiet streets.
Last week, lambs were seen larking about in a playground as the coronavirus lockdown continued.
With people under strict instructions to stay at home and only go out if they really need to, a flock was caught playing on a roundabout in a park.
And they look like they had a fantastic time.
The lighthearted clip was filmed by Debbie Ellis, who shared it on her Facebook page with the caption: "On a lighter note the lambs are getting there once a day exercise in."

And goats have been causing havoc in Llandudno, Wales, with the police having to get involved.
Bizarre clips were shared by photographer Andrew Stuart, who spotted a gang of goats roaming the streets, jumping on walls, munching on hedges, and even making it onto people's roofs.
According to the BBC, Town councillor Carol Marubbi commented: "They are curious, goats are, and I think they are wondering what's going on like everybody else."
She added: "There isn't anyone else around so they probably decided they may as well take over."
But they stole the hearts of people online, with thousands sharing the photos and videos.
Posting their own snap of them chilling on some grass, one person wrote: "The Great Orme goats have reclaimed Llandudno! Long live our caprine overlords!"
