Sean Lewis was arrested for allegedly keeping a baby alligator in his bathtub.

A Florida man was arrested after deputies allegedly found a baby alligator in his bathtub, according to WFTV.

Sean Lewis, 45, is being held at Volusia County jail on a charge of alligator poaching.

CFNews13 reported that Lewis’ mother called authorities because she had asked him to get rid of the alligator and it was still there several days later.

Lewis reportedly told deputies the alligator belonged to a friend and they had not come back to get it yet.

WFTV reported that the bathtub was set up as a makeshift aquarium with a cinder block inside and an overhead heat lamp.
