There have been tales of some wild dorm room pets and mascots, but this may take the cake.

Several Florida Gulf Coast University students have been cited after allegedly taking a dead alligator into a dorm.

Campus police said this week they saw a photo of the 3-foot reptile on social media, where it appeared to be in someone's bed.

If this was a prank then dead gator in a friend's bed is a classic, if this was just laying next to a dead animal then it gets a bit weird.
