The Odd Couple

"I've never seen anything like it. Gohan sometimes even climbs onto Aochan to take a nap on his back," says zoo keeper Kazuya Yamamoto.

Gohan is a three and a half inch dwarf hamster.

Aochan is a Japanese rat snake.

When Aochan lost his appetite for frozen mice in October, Zookeepers at Tokyo's Mutsugoro Okoku zoo gave him Gohan, whose name means "meal" in Japanese, as a squirmy replacement.

Aochan messed with everybody's heads when he made friends with the little fuzz instrad of munching him. The pair have shared a cage since.
