It was an almost eight and a half foot long alligator, with its weight upto 90 kilos. Ashley Lawrence is from Miami and participated in this competition and put all her concentration to it. She admitted that she was feeling all the pressure and thought she would not be good enough. She explained in a report that she had to remind herself of her skills to calm her mind. Talking about pulling off the feat she said, "The part of this whole experience that had the biggest impact on me was the strength and love I was surrounded with from the community, from the spectators, from my own competitors. So many young women came up to share with me how my six minutes in the arena made them feel." Graduation Snap Ideas! This Girl in Texas Had an Alligator to Pose With, See Viral Pics!

That's incredible! The techniques that she used were part of the training given in Seminole Tribe of Florida to safely capture alligators. She used the same knowledge to understand the powers of the alligator, its behaviour and movements. Also, the alligators from this competition were later let out in the wild.
