Mexican Mayor Ties The Knot With Crocodile In Lavish Wedding Ceremony


Victor Aguilar, the Mayor of San Pedro Huamelula, took a crocodile to be his wife in the southern region of Oaxaca on Friday, as part of an indigenous tradition intended to bring good fortune to local fishermen. .

The female crocodile was baptised on Thursday, and was subsequently dressed in a white robe
and had her jaws clamped shut on the big day. .

Tradition demands the Mayor of San Pedro Huamelula marry a new crocodile each year, as legend has it that the ceremony will bring fishermen luck in fishing. .

Aguilar said: ‘With this ritual we ask for a good harvest, for the sea and the lagoons to give us all the food we need and we ask that everything goes well with everyone here.’
