A woman who fell in love with a snake has married it at a wedding attended by 2,000 guests in India. Priests chanted prayers to make the wedding official, but the snake wouldn\'t come out its home in an ant hill where it lives. A replica of the snake made of brass stood in for the shy groom. \"Though snakes cannot speak or understand, we communicate in a special way,\" said Das, who is 30 years old. \"Whenever I put milk near the ant hill where the cobra lives, it always comes out to drink. \"I always get to see it every time I go near the ant hill. It has never harmed me,\" she added. Villagers welcomed the wedding in the belief it would bring good fortune and had a feast for the big day. Snakes are loved in India as religious symbols. Hindu priests gave Das permission to marry the cobra, the world\'s largest venomous snake, which can grow up to five meters. \"I am happy,\" said her mother Dyuti Bhoi, who still has two other daughters and two sons to marry off. \"(Das) was sick. We had no money to treat her. Then she started offering milk to the snake ... she was cured. That made her fall in love.\" Das has moved into a hut built close to the ant hill since the wedding.

1. I think something like this can only happen in under-developed countries, where people still believe in superstitions, and marriage to another specie could be legal.2. It is amazing how the bride's mother, and even the priest gave their blessings. This is unbelievable from a Taiwanese point of view, considering some families disapprove of marriages of different political believes!3. This is an insane act in the eyes of modern society, and yet, who are we to judge this incident. We don't know anything about Indian culture, we don't understand its mystery. However, I do wonder what their offspring would look like!參考資料： myself
