VIDEO Mexican Mayor Marries Crocodile

Posted: Updated:

The mayor of a Mexican fishing town 'married' a crocodile in a symbolic ceremony on Wednesday that's part of a local tradition.

Before the ceremony, the wedding party walked with the crocodile bride through the town of San Pedro Huamelula, in the south of the country.

Town mayor Joel Vasquez Rojas married the crocodile at city hall then danced with it in his arms during a party packed with the town's residents. Tradition says the crocodile is a princess and that the wedding ritual will bring plenty of fish, shrimp and other seafood for fishermen to catch along the Pacific coast.
