PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman came home to an unwanted guest at her front door.

Donna Heiss tells WKMG that as she pulled into her garage on Thursday, her neighbors yelled for her to get inside. Once inside, she looked out the glass front door and saw a large alligator looking back at her.

She says she was nervous that the gator "was going to break the glass" before the alligator trapper arrived. She took cellphone video of the gator pressing its nose against the glass and then walking around the house to find another way inside.

The trapper estimated the gator at between 7 and 8 feet (2.1 and 2.4 meters).

Palm Coast is in on Florida's Atlantic Coast.
