The mayor has married the alligator wearing a wedding dress, sealing the odd couple’s union with a kiss.
It was part of an age-old indigenous tradition, conducted by Mayor Victor Hugo Sosa, and intended to bring abundance to the village of San Pedro Huamelula in southwestern Mexico.
The ceremony was colourful, with traditional music and revellers dancing, while urging the indigenous leader to kiss his new bride.
The reptile depicts a princess who will bring good fortune to the community during the fishing season.
Trumpets blared and drums provided a festive beat as the mayor carried the alligator bride in his arms through the streets as men fanned it with their hats.
