A fast food restaurant got a customer it wasn’t expecting when a live alligator was tossed through a drive-through window by a patron.

Joshua James, 23, wanted to play a practical joke on a friend working at the Wendy’s restaurant in Florida when he decided to hurl the reptile into the building in October.

“It was just a stupid prank that he did that’s now turning into this,” James’ mother, Linda James, told local broadcaster WPTV, adding that her son is a huge fan of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.

“He’s a prankster. He does stuff like this because he thinks it’s funny.”

Officials retrieved the animal from the restaurant’s kitchen, taped its jaws shut and released it to a nearby canal.

James faces charges of aggravated assault and unlawful possession, and transportation of an alligator.
