Snake and Hamster are Friends

No, that's not a children's book, although it could be.

It's about these two:

A snake and a hamster at a Tokyo zoo have reportedly become pals.

The hamster was dropped into the cage as a snack, but three months later the two still cohabit peacefully. Zookeepers say that the snake appears to enjoy the hamster's company.

Personally, I think that the snake is just saving the hamster for later, like the pint of B&J "Cherry Garcia" I've got stowed in the back of the freezer. It's nice to know it's there.

Snakes run mostly on instinct. They've been known to become so mindless when fully fed as to just sit there while its food(small live mammals) gnaw them to death over a period of days.
