A Mexican mayor has surprised many after he recently married a crocodile in a colorful wedding ceremony.
Hugo Sosa said “I Do” to the seven year old crocodile named “Little Princess” which was dressed in a white veil.
During the ceremony, Mr Sosa even kissed the crocodile as wedding attendees cheered while witnessing the unusual wedding.
According to reports, the mayor’ wedding to the crocodile is part of traditional ritual which the locals believe brings prosperity and joins humans with divine.
The practice is the combination of rituals from the Huave and Chontal indigenous communities who pray for nature’s bounty and Catholicism.
After the wedding, the reptile was carried through the streets in the Mexico’s Oaxaca state.
