There’s a good chance that your graduation pictures weren’t anywhere near as extreme as Mackenzie Noland’s. That’s because the Texas A&M grad decided to take her pictures with a 14-foot-long, 1,000-pound alligator named Big Tex.
Noland majored in wildlife ecology and spent her summer at an alligator sanctuary in Beaumont, Texas, where Big Tex is located.
“He’s one of my best friends here,” she told Inside Edition. “I thought it was a great way to commutate my summer here.”
