It's the less-frequently seen (and shy) American CROCODILE.

Both co-exist in deep-South Florida, and would appreciate pool-noodles to raise their cooler bodies to gain solar warmth. (Which could catch on!) Did the pool-noodle owner surrender it...or...or...gulp...?

According to several news-coverages, the event really occurred. https://www.sciencealert.com/crocodi...s-swimming-aid (Snopes hasn't added this to their agenda—as a "Global Crisis" event).
