Mayor Marries Crocodile

Joel Vasquez Rojas is the mayor of San Pedro Huamelula, a town in Oaxaca, Mexico. This past week, in a grand public wedding, he married a young female crocodile that was wearing a white bridal gown.

The wedding was in keeping with an old tradition in this coastal fishing town. The crocodile is proclaimed a “princess.” Marrying her ensures good luck for fishermen in the future.

Residents filled the city hall, where the wedding took place. They danced, ate, and set off fireworks. The bride and groom, of course, took the first dance.
