Mexican mayor marries a female alligator

The mayor of Oaxaca, a city in Mexico, has married a female alligator. Victor Hugo Garcia married the animal during a traditional indigenous tribal celebration that celebrates man's bond with nature.

The symbolic ceremony performed according to ancient rites aims to unite man with the divine, to guarantee rain, water, fish and food in abundance.

The alligator is called by the locals "the little princess" and to them it is like a deity representing Mother Earth.

"Their marriage" serves to unite nature and humans in a sacred alliance.
