FRIENDS? I think not my friends, that snake is terrified of that hamster.
And for good reason
For you see, that is no ordinary hamster, it is, *dun dun dun* A dwarf hamster, the most viscious cutie you'll ever see.
Ever had a pet dwarf? Was it cute? Was it friendly? If so, then you have a very rare dwarf, for they are usually chompers. No no, I won't tolerate people saying "nibblers" they chomp, they go for fingers and try to amputate. I attribute it to my guess that they aren't domesticated animals and inherently dislike all other animals, even other hamsters =\
So I don't believe that this hamster and snake are friends, I believe the snake fears for its own life, a very wise snake if you ask me.
And, btw, what's the difference between feeding a hamster or a mouse/rat to a snake? Hm? It's both repulsive but if you ask me, it's worse to have a rat as snake food then a hamster ¬.¬
