    I can see a story like this ending badly.

    Everyone starts to visit the snake, just to see the hamster in there with him, then one day, the snake just gets a bit too hungry...

    *chomp*

    Snakes routinely eat small rodents and hamsters routinely chew their way out of plastic/metal enclosures. I don't see any reason to leave the two together, other than to drum up some publicity for the zoo.

    The picture in the article shows the two. I know snakes are able to eat things larger than their heads, but that hampster looks like it could beat the snake up. Even more so if it can power up like a DBZ character.

    Not that shocking really. Animals in captivity get bored with life, and try to drum up their own entertainment. I once had a chocolate cichlid (a fish around ten to twelve inches) that kept a guppy around as a pet for a long, long time. I'd guess the guppy died of old-age because it never got ate, just keeled over one day.

    Pets keeping pets is pretty cool, but not some big "OMG IT'S TOTALLY AGAINST NATURE!" thing. I mean, living in a small space is against nature for these animals too. Once you cross that line, anything's possible.
