houston, Texas -
(KPRC) A Missouri City, Texas piano teacher received a shocking surprise Monday. A large alligator had taken up residence in her yard.
"I noticed people in my yard and I thought, 'What's going on?'" said Tanya Chaovaletz.
Chaovaletz said one of her students spotted the gator.
"He came in and told me he saw an alligator," Chaovaletz said.
"Most of the people driving by can't even notice that it's there," said neighbor Rafik Sandford. "It's scary. You could just walk up on it. It's a game changer."
