Just look at the size of this alligator. Gary Saurage was beyond thrilled when he captured this big guy alive. The 13 foot 8 inch long reptile weighed more than 900 pounds which is about half a ton. As the lead alligator handler for the state of Texas, Gary says reeling in this gator is the ultimate highlight of his career. It was causing a nuisance at a national wildlife refuge and Gary was called in to remove it. The gator will be kept at his reptile rescue educational facility.
