Snakes are really f*cking disgusting. That's an indisputable fact.
Yet, a 13-year-old boy named A Zhe living in Dongguan, China, has been sleeping in the same bed as a python since he was just a few months old.
The snake was bought by A Zhe's father and was already 6 years old and weighed nearly 45 pounds when A Zhe was born. When he was 9 months old, the boy began playing with the python, and the two became great friends.
They would spend all day with each other, and the snake has never harmed A Zhe. A Zhe rarely asked for any toys — because he only needs his snake to play with.
A lot of boys feel that way (HEY-OH!).
However, A Zhe has started to attend middle school and only sleeps at homes on Saturdays, so he can't be with his good buddy all the time anymore. But A Zhe plans to become a zoologist to make more animal friends.
