College student takes unusual graduation photos with massive alligator

BEAUMONT, Texas — A college student in Texas took graduation photos to a whole new level last week.

Mackenzie Alexis Noland is a Wildlife Ecology major at Texas A&M University and wanted to do something a little different for her graduation photos.

She had her grad pics taken with 'Big Tex,' a 14-foot long alligator at Gator Country in Beaumont. She interned with Gator Country and posted the pictures to Facebook with the caption 'not your typical graduation photo.'

Noland graduates in 2019.
