Friends forever

Snakes usually eat hamsters. But when rat snake Ao-chan and dwarf hamster Gohan-chan met at a Japanese zoo, they were immediately friends. Now the snake and the hamster are room mates, living together in a glass box.

"When we first found Ao-chan, the snake refused to eat so we went to a pet shop but was told they were out of frozen mice and suggested we try a hamster. However the moment we put it in the cage, it was instantaneous friendship and the snake seemed to have no appetite for it," said zoo keeper Kazuya Yamamoto.
