A pet is a friend. You can tell them secrets, be your companion, a friend when you need them to be, a happy pill when you’re sad, a pillow when you need a hug, and a boyfriend or a girlfriend when you don’t have one.
But this boy in Cambodia named Sambath has a unique pet - a python. This python was said to have been found by Sambath’s parents under his crib when he was only 3 months old. They said that they did not kill the snake and instead they just set it free. However, after some time, the snake found its way back to Sambath’s crib. It happened multiple times so the parents decided to just keep the snake. They named the snake “Chomran”.
Sambath’s mother, Kimkinara, also said that before Sambath was born, she dreamt of a snake that would protect them. In Buddhism, if you dream about a snake, it is believed to be a good omen, specifically an omen of “Salvation”
