Mexican Mayor marries crocodile

July 6, 2017

A mayor in Mexico has married a crocodile. Don’t worry though, it’s not a real wedding.

The marriage is part of an ancient Mexican ceremony which is more than 200 years old.

The mayor of the southern Mexican fishing town San Pedro Huamelula ‘marries’ a crocodile at the end of June as part of the local harvest tradition.

The reptile bride, dressed in white with a flower crown on its head is taken around the town to music before the ceremony takes place.

The croc is regarded as a princess, and the traditional belief is that it will bring peace and prosperity to their community, particularly a good harvest.
