Nolan's work is also educational, leading an event that allowed children to swim with three-foot-long alligators (their mouths are taped shut) and teaching them about boa constrictors and pythons, two other reptiles at the center.

An animal-loving USA university student posed with a fully-grown alligator for some truly one-of-a-kind graduation photos.

In fact, Big Tex has actually always been a friendly gator, she said.

The Gator Rescue centre in Beaumont, Texas, USA, is home to about 450 alligators, crocodiles and reptiles.

Noland, who graduates with a wildlife ecology degree this week told KTXS: 'It's something I'm super proud of.

'It took him a few weeks for him to like me. "He's a real life dinosaur", Noland said.

Noland posted videos to her Facebook page on May 27th, saying that was the first time Tex let her feed him. It was reminiscent of graduation pictures taken earlier this year that got a lot of attention.

Those pictures hit the proverbial Gun Debate nerve, triggering a torrent of criticism and praise.

Last week, Makenzie Alexis Noland, a wildlife ecology major who will graduate from Texas A&M University on August 10, posted the unique images on social media, writing, "Not your typical graduation picture".
