A Mexican mayor married an alligator dressed in a wedding gown and sealed their marriage with a kiss.

Mayor Victor Hugo Sosa of San Pedro Huamelula married an alligator as part of an age-old indigenous ritual to bring abundance to the village in southwestern Mexico.

The seven-year-old reptile known as Little Princess is thought to be a deity representing Mother Earth, and her marriage to the local leader represents the union of humans and the divine.

The jaws of the alligator had been tied shut to prevent any unwanted biting during the ritual.

The godmother who organized the wedding, Elia Edith Aguilar, said she spent a lot of time worrying about what the bride would wear.

“It gives me so much happiness and makes me proud of my roots,” says godmother Elia Edith Aguilar.

‘It’s a very lovely tradition.’

The ritu@l marriage most likely dates back centuries to pre-Hispanic times among the Chontal and Huave indigenous communities of Oaxaca state.

It’s similar to a village prayer pleading for nature’s bounty.

‘We ask nature for enough rain,’ said Mayor Sosa.
