Oun Sambath and his pet python.
A few months after Oun Sambath was born, his family found a baby python under his mattress. They carefully took it outside, but during the night it returned to be with the baby boy. The boy’s father prayed, and decided that the snake belonged to the boy and would bring them happiness.
The boy and the snake have been together ever since. They have played together, have slept together, and even have talked together.
“What do you say to the snake?” People have asked the boy.
“That is a secret,” the boy has replied.
