The ritual marriage likely dates back centuries to pre-Hispanic times among Oaxaca state’s Chontal and Huave indigenous communities, like a prayer pleading for nature’s bounty, the Voice of America reported.

The Daily Mail reported that the seven-year-old reptile, referred to as Little Princess, is believed to be a deity representing Mother Earth and her marriage to the local leader symbolises the joining of humans with the divine.

The reptile’s mouth had been tied shut, obviously to avoid unwanted snapping. Speaking on the ritual, Mayor Sosa said:

“We ask nature for enough rain, for enough food, that we have fish in the river.”

Images and videos from the colourful ceremony showed the attendees in good spirits as they danced to traditional music with many imploring the indigenous leader to kiss his new bride.
