Most people would be afraid when seeing asnake, but not the boy A Zhe in Dongguan who is only 13 years old. Ever sincehe was a few months old, he’s been sleeping in the same bed with a python. Therelationship he has with the python not only leave people amazed, but alsoinspired: Any animal in nature can be friends with humans.
The snake egg was bought by A Zhe’s father, sothe python came to A Zhe’s home before it was born, and by the time A Zhe wasborn, the python was already 6 years old, weighing more than 20kg. When A Zhewas 9 months old, his parents were busy making a living, going out during theday to work, so A Zhe would play with the python. In the hot summer, the pythonbecame A Zhe’s natural air conditioner. In the winter, A Zhe would worry thepython might be cold, so he would warm the body of his “old pal”.
A Zhe’s father says his son and the python arewith each other all day and all night, and it has never harmed A Zhe. Itbecomes very active especially when it is with A Zhe. Having this lively,adorable “good friend”, A Zhe has had no interest in other toys ever since hewas small, and to this day has very rarely asked his parents to buy him anytoys, with this python being the one thing that plays with him the most.
