HOLLYWOOD, FL (WPLG/CNN) - Beachgoers in Hollywood, FL, got quite the surprise when they arrived this morning.

A crocodile decided to spend a little time in the surf.

Police kept the public back and the reptile opted to move toward the ocean.

State wildlife trappers were also on the scene, but officials said they preferred to let the animal leave on its own. However, they later captured the crocodile and removed it from the beach.
