This eight-year-old girl from Israel has an unusual swimming buddy an eleven-foot long python. The serpent even has a name Belle named after Belle from Beauty and the Beast, as the snake’s yellow color resembles Belle’s yellow ball gown.
The girl says her playmate has been good company during the COVID-19 lockdown.
“It helps me pass the time because I really like to hang out with snakes and I help them to be happy in times of coronavirus.”
The girl used to swim with her pet snake in the bathtub when she was little, and her mother says it’s no surprise the two now swim together in a pool, as both of them have grown bigger.
