Senior Takes Graduation Photos With A Giant Alligator

A senior at Texas A&M took graduation photos with one of her “best friends” which just happens to be a giant alligator.  

The gator named Big Tex weighs about 1,000 pounds and holds the national record for the “largest live-captured nuisance alligator.”

The senior has been getting to know Big Tex since May 17th as part of her 3-month internship with the alligator adventure park and sanctuary. 

She’ll be graduating with a degree in wildlife ecology this week... and decided to take her graduation photos with the gator.
