Can't Decide On A Pet? - How About A Python

By Meera Dolasia on December 3, 2007

Can't decide on a pet? - How about a Python - That's what seven year-old Cambodian resident Koun Samang has, and they are inseparable!

While the python would consider most of us lunch or dinner, she seems to like this seven-year old, who has been her constant companion since the boy was a few months old and the snake a mere 20 inches long. 

Now the snake is just under 16ft long and dwarfs the little boy, who loves the python like she was her little "sister". The parents believe the python has brought good luck to the family and have no problems allowing Koun to play with her.

          I think snakes are cool. I have held a yellow and white Python and it was amazing.
