One of the deputies then asked Machan-Le Quire if she had "anything else".

The male driver told officers he and his female passenger were trying to collect some frogs and snakes from under an overpass.

It was no ordinary traffic stop for deputies Monday morning in Charlotte County, Florida.

Sheriffs deputies say they stopped a pickup truck after they observed it passing through a stop sign.

A Florida woman has given new meaning to the term "snappy dresser", pulling a small alligator from her yoga trousers during a traffic stop.

The woman was riding with a 22-year-old man who deputies said rolled through a stop sign in Punta Gorda, leading to the traffic stop.

OnePlus explains why its phones don't get given an IP rating
OnePlus has opened up the pre-booking of its new OnePlus 7 Pro , the new flagship from the company on the Amazon India website. Going by that logic, it has predicted that the starting price of OnePlus 7 is likely to range from Rs 37,000 to Rs 39,500.

Machan-Le Quire "proceeded to pull an alligator out of her yoga trousers (about one foot in length) and placed it into the bed of the truck", the incident report read, KPLC said. She also had 41 3-stripe turtles in the vehicle. Alligators given to tourists to hold usually have a rubber band around their jaws so no one loses a finger.

The woman was cited for possession and bag limit violations for all three species, which are native to Florida but are regulated.

The sheriff's office shared the discovery on Facebook and Twitter.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was called to the scene to investigate.

The FWC did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
