And now for a nicer hamster story

This is a picture of Aochan, a rat snake living in a Japanese zoo, with Gohan, a hamster that was fed to the snake. In October.

Apparently, Aochan refused to eat Gohan and the pair now share a cage with every indication that they enjoy each other's company. Gohan has even been observed falling asleep draped across a creature that should send him scurrying into a corner, screeching in terror.

And this kind of thing itsn't unprecedented. Witness the lioness that keeps adopting baby antelopes.

Not quite lions and lambs, but it's no wonder that the nutbars think we're living in the Last Days.

Or maybe it's simply proof of Sir Arthur Eddington's famous postulation that "not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine."
