As residents of Florida seek cover from Hurricane Irma, animals are also finding new places to take shelter. Just before the storm, a flock of flamingos followed a trainer to a shelter room at Busch Gardens in Tampa. An alligator was captured on video by the Melbourne Fire Department slithering, then running out of the road to a nearby retention pond. And an unlucky catfish was caught right in someone's driveway.
These were just a few of the types of animals in Florida who needed refuge from the massive storm!
