Here’s a story with more than a little of Isaiah 11:6 about it.
In Tokyo Zoo, there is a rat snake named Aochan who got cheesed off with his usual diet of frozen mice. Well, I can understand that - what self-respecting snake would be content with nothing but frozen mice. So his keepers decided they’d liven him up a bit by offering him a dwarf hamster called Gohan - which apparently means ‘Meal’. Nobody could say the Japanese don’t have a sense of humour.
But instead of tucking in as he was supposed to, Aochan has befriended Gohan, to the extent that the hamster sometimes curls up to sleep on the snake’s back.
Personally, I think the hamster had better watch out. I reckon that snake’s just biding his time.
