A Texas teenager bagged a 14-foot, 800-pound alligator in a reservoir in south Texas.

That’s 18-year-old Braxton Bielski kneeling behind the giant reptile.

Braxton’s dad says his son always wanted to hunt alligators, but he never expected to catch one this big.

In fact, it’s the largest alligator ever certified in Texas.
