A man gets married, and he literally has to tape the bride’s mouth shut Youtube Screen Shot

You can kiss the bride could be really dangerous in this case.

That’s because the Mayor of the small Mexican town of San Pedro Huamelula in southwest Mexico got married — to a crocodile.

No, it’s not that strange. It’s a tradition that dates back to 1789, a symbolic ritual started by the Chontal Indians.

As Mayor Victor Aguilarand explained, the “marriage” is meant to bring luck the fisherman of this small fishing village and also is believed to helped bring a good harvest.

The croc’s name, he said, is “Princess,” and should could be crowned a queen if all goes well.
