College student includes massive gator in graduation photos

College student includes massive gator in graduation photos”

With graduation a highlight for many students, it makes sense to get fun and creative with graduation pictures.

While studying at Texas A&M, she worked as an intern at alligator sanctuary Gator Country, where the viral photos were taken.

Makenzie Noland, a Texas student, poses for her graduation photo in cap, sash and - somewhat unusually - with an alligator.

She posted the graduation pictures on Facebook and they went viral. Since its publication on Friday, Noland's post has more than 200 shares and it only keeps growing.

Noland posted videos to her Facebook page on May 27th, saying that was the first time Tex let her feed him. And some are not definitely not as friendly as Big Tex.

Mackenzie Noland's graduation snaps won't soon be forgotten - because they feature a 14ft alligator.

So does Noland. Her photo wasn't meant as an attention-getting stunt.

"It's something I'm super proud of", she told The Eagle in reference to her gator senior photos, because she and Big Tex were not best friends from the start.

"I have a good relationship with Big Tex", she said. "When I'm telling Tex to "come here" using a hand motion I will reward him, tickle his nose and toss food in his mouth".

"I get in the water with him every day".

Noland's picture wasn't almost as polarizing, but some people thought it was foolishly unsafe for her to risk life and limb for a graduation shot.

And it has been the flawless place for Mackenzie who said she has always been "picking up snakes and holding animals" from an early age.

She said his demeanor reminds her of a puppy.
