— Officials say a Florida Panhandle Fish and Wildlife officer lost a 5-foot alligator after bringing it to his daughter’s school for show and tell.

Searchers scoured a wooded area surrounding the school Friday afternoon. The alligator jumped out of the man’s vehicle Friday morning. The animal’s mouth was taped.

Fish and Wildlife Spokesman Stan Kirkland says alligators have “amazing” jumping ability and that allowed it to escape.
