Snake befriends lunch

A zookeeper at Japan's Mutsugoro Okoku Zoo was worried about a rat snake that had lost its appetite. The snake, named Aochan, was refusing to eat the frozen mice he was giving it, so the zookeeper decided to give Aochan a special treat—a live hamster. But Aochan didn't eat the hamster. Instead, the two "developed an unusual bond" and now share a cage together.
