Alligators usually don't make the guest list, but they're VIPs at these parties.

"You've had the Chuck E Cheese party, the clown party, the jump-a-roo bounce house," said Bob Barrett, owner of Alligator Attractions in Johns Pass Village.

"You say, 'Well, we're gonna have a party,'" he said. "They go, 'That's nice.' But you say, 'We're going to have a pool party with a gator.' They go, 'What?' Everybody comes."

Customer Debbie Rubenstein said she has used the service multiple times.

"Nobody believed that we'd have actual gators in the pool," she said.
