Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies said a woman pulled an alligator from her trousers during a traffic stop Monday morning.

The truck was being driven by 22-year-old Michael Clemons, and contained a passenger, 25-year-old Ariel Machan-Le Quire.

That's when investi-gators were greeted to an unusual sight: a 0.3-metre gator.

The sheriff's office said the woman was asked if she was carrying anything else, and she produced a baby alligator from inside her yoga trousers.

"[It happened] after being asked the standard 'Do you have anything else?'"

The Florida Fish Wildlife and Conservation Commission was called to the scene shortly before 4 a.m. and worked to navigate the scene.

It has not been confirmed whether the pair have been charged over the incident, The Miami Herald reports.

In a amusing social media post Monday, the department shared a photo of the gator in question.

Clemons and Marchan Le Quire consented, and they opened their backpacks.

A deputy gave the driver a warning for running the stop sign and asked to see the animals they collected to ensure they didn't have anything they weren't supposed to have.

A spokesperson for the state agency did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment Tuesday morning.
