Chan Liu found the perfect nanny for taking care of his 13 year-old son, Azhe. It’s a 15 foot long, 220 pound python.
Liu insists his son and the snake are the ‘best of friends” that kiss and cuddle. Azhe describes his python as “very careful with me and never squeezes too hard.”
Chan Liu purchased the snake six years before Azhe was born. Liu claims that he knew the snake wouldn’t hurt his son, so he left them alone and they grew to be inseparable.
The man, his son and their pet python live in Dongguan which is in the southern part of China. Chan Liu has stated that he has no problem leaving his young son home alone with the snake.
Instead of a cage or habitat, the python is left loose in the home. Locals were shocked when they witnessed Azhe kissing and cuddling the natural predator.
Liu revealed his fascination with the large snake. “I’d always thought them the most beautiful creatures and I was interested to see what would happen when my son came along.”
“After a while we were certain the snake wouldn’t hurt him and we began to leave them together alone. They really are inseparable.”
Of the snake as a nanny, Chan Liu believes the python is the perfect protector. “I don’t think many kidnappers would tangle with her.”
