HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Beachgoers in Hollywood, Florida won't be able to get back on the beach for a while because of a crocodile that wanted to have some fun in the waves. 

The crocodile was found in the waves on the beach near Surf Road and Hayes Street and police quickly set up caution tape to keep people safe.

The crocodile appeared to be dead, but after laying motionless in the surf, it started moving around and crawling toward the water. 

Fun Fact: Crocodiles and alligators are native to the United States, and south Florida is the only place where both of the species coexist.
