A “ Crocodile bride” is baptized in a church and dressed in a white wedding gown to marry the Mayor of the Mexican town of San Pedro Huamelula.

Locals call the crocodile “the little princess”, the reptile is believed to be a representation of a goddess. As part of this fertility tradition, which started in 1789, residents accompany the wedding procession through the town with band music.

Each year they pay tribute to the reptile bride, they believe this wedding symbolizes the balance between man and nature.
