      best friends who share a habitat at the Tokyo Mutsugoro Okoku zoo. The handler gave the hamster to the snake as a meal, but the snake refused to eat him, and they have lived together as BFFs ever since!

      I cut this one out of the Metro in 2006 and sent it to my mom. It's still on the fridge. Hamster and Snake - Best Friends at Tokyo Zoo

    • Mary Vallejo

      This hamster should be dinner, not a snake’s best friend – and in fact zookeepers offered up Gohan the hamster (whose name means “meal” in Japanese) as a tasty snack when Aochan the snake refused to eat frozen mice.........But instead of chowing down, he made a friend.......The pair cohabitate in harmony in a cardboard box at the Mutsugoro Okoku zoo in the outskirts of Tokyo.

      In Tokyo zoo, a hamster was placed in the terrarium of a snake called Aochan, who was refusing to eat frozen rats. Aochan, a rat snake, would be expected to make a meal of a hamster but instead left it alone. The hamster does not seem afraid of his reptile chum and often sleeps on top of Aochan.They became an attraction at the zoo, and the lucky hamster was called Gohan by his keepers, meaning ‘Meal.’

      A rodent-eating snake and a hamster have developed an unusual bond at a zoo in Tokyo, Japan. Their relationship began when zookeepers presented the hamster to the snake as a meal. However, the rat snake (named Aochan) refused to eat the rodent. The two now share a cage, and the hamster sometimes falls asleep sitting on top of his natural foe. Zookeepers have since named the hamster ‘Gohan’ – the Japanese word for meal.

    Hamster in a donut


    Clinging on with sticky toes, a green tree frog sits bravely on its unlikely friend - a large tree python. Curled around the branches of a small coconut tree, the snake appears relatively undisturbed by the bold passenger that has clambered onto its skin. Grown in captivity together, the pair display no signs of aggression or fear, comfortable with their encounters high up in the leafy branches
