SAN PEDRO HUAMELULA: The Mayor of a Mexican city married a crocodile on Tuesday in an age-old ritual to bring good luck and prosperity to the community's fishermen. 

In a very bizarre and strange ceremony, the Mayor of San Pedro Huamelula, Victor Aguilar tied the knot with a crocodile in the town hall.

Before the ceremony took place, the crocodile was dressed up in a bride's clothing and even wore a veil with her jaws shut tight.

The Chontal Indians practiced the tradition of marrying a crocodile in order to bring good luck to the fishermen. This was practiced way back in 1789.

Mr Aguilar was beaming on the occasion and said ,"The marenos [referring to the local residents], call her 'The Princess'.

"So the role that I play is to be the husband of the princess."
