Mexican Mayor Marries Crocodile: Hopes To Bring Abundance To Village

A mayor of a small Mexican village called San Pedro Huamelula married an alligator that was wearing a wedding dress. Victor Hugo Sosa even sealed the matrimonial ceremony with a kiss as part of an age-old indigenous ritual to bring abundance to the village. The reptile is believed to be a deity representing Mother Earth and her marriage to the local leader symbolizes the joining of humans with the divine.

Thought you had heard and seen it all? Well, a Mexican mayor who married an alligator may just blow your mind. Reports revealed that Mayor, Victor Hugo Sosa of San Pedro Huamelula village married an alligator that was wearing a wedding dress and sealed their nuptials with a kiss. It is said that the ceremony was part of an age-old indigenous ritual to bring abundance to the village in south-western Mexico.

The ritual marriage likely dates back centuries to pre-Hispanic times among Oaxaca state’s Chontal and Huave indigenous communities, like a prayer pleading for nature’s bounty, the Voice of America reported.

The reptile’s mouth had been tied shut, obviously to avoid unwanted snapping. Speaking on the ritual, Mayor Sosa said:

“We ask nature for enough rain, for enough food, that we have fish in the river.”

Images and videos from the colourful ceremony showed the attendees in good spirits as they danced to traditional music with many imploring the indigenous leader to kiss his new bride.
