Sambath is an 11-year-old boy from Cambodia and, like lots of children, he has an animal. But his pet is not what you would call “regular.” It’s an 18-foot-long, 250-pound python!
When Sambath was just three months old his moms and dads discovered the snake under his baby crib. The python was also just a child at the time and determined less than a foot long. However no matter the number of times Sambath’s parents took the little intruder out to the garden, it constantly managed to find its method back into the home. Finally they quit and chose to keep the animal as an animal. They named it “Chomran” and for the past 11 years it’s been their boy’s faithful companion.
