Texas A&M University grad Makenzie Noland --a wildlife ecology major and intern at the alligator rescue Gator Country--has gone viral with her grad photo, in which she's wearing her cap and gown while "lovingly touching" the snout of a nearly 14-foot gator named Big Tex!
Apparently, they have formed a special bond.
"Every single time I get in the water with him, I realize how huge he is.” Big Tex is the largest gator at the rescue.
Wow, good for her! I don't imagine she'll be getting many copycats!
