I dreamt that I was at a beach. I had a diving mask on, and I was looking towards the water and thought I saw a manta ray shadow in the water. I kept looking and decided to go into the water to see if I could get a better look. I dove under and saw an alligator swimming towards me. It took a few bites at me, but I was able to grab its mouth and hold it shut. I took it out of the water and started carrying it around. As I brought it home to see what I should do with it, and the bottom jaw split in half and each side tried to lick me. I finally brought it back to the shore and threw it into the surf.
