January 21 2006

In a Tokyo zoo (Mutsugoro Okoku) suddenly appeared strange friendship: dwarf hamster was a friend of a 120-centimeter rat snake.

Hamster snake planted as a food, but she refused on such treats.

Hamster named Goen (Gohan) (in Japanese "food"), presented as "tidbits" 2-year-old snake Eochan (Aochan) in October last year, after he (the male) refused to eat frozen mice .

To the surprise of zoo workers, the snake decided to make friends with the furry rodent, and since then the couple lives in a cage. And Goen often climbs to the "back" of his friend and sleeps there.

By Eochanu, in the end, appetite returned, and he eats frozen rodents but Goena devour it until just is not going to - no symptoms are evident.

"We named the hamster Goenom in jest - grins zoo staff Katsuya Yamamoto (Kazuya Yamamoto). - I do not think that he faces any danger. The two men seem to enjoy each other's company," according to "News America."
