Snake Boy (2008): In Cambodia, a real-life Mowgli strokes and kisses his five-metre long pet, a giant Burmese python. Seven-year old Sambath rides, wrestles and even sleeps with a snake big enough to squeeze a man to death. Subscribe to Journeyman: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

"I pat and kiss it, like a husband and wife," Sambath says. As the family sit down to eat, Lucky the python slides around the edge of the room. It survives on a diet of four chickens a week, yet giant pythons have been known to eat their owners. "Since the snake has been in our house we've been safe," says Sambath's mother who tenderly washes the python, which was just the size of a thumb when it first crawled into the family home.
