Two pythons are now husband and wife following a ceremony residents in the Cambodian village believe will ward off bad luck.
A “possessed person” suggest the ceremony, which was held just southeast of the country's capital of Phnom Penh, the Phnom Penh Post reported. At first, the suggestion was dismissed, but the idea quickly spread.
Hundreds of people attended Monday's ceremony.
Neth Vy, 41, owns Chamroeun, the four-metre-long female python, which weighs 90 kg. Vy told the newspaper many of the villagers believe the union will bring prosperity.
Hin Mao owns the groom, Ar Krong Pich, who is smaller than Chamroeun at 20 kg and is only three-quarters the size of his wife. Mao said she caught her snake 13 days ago.
The snakes will not live together, the paper reported. Source...
