A 13-year-old Chinese boy has about as non-traditional of a nanny as one could imagine, as the boy is taken care of by a 15-foot-long python.

That’s right, Chan Liu enlisted the tremendous slithering creature to take care of his son, Azhe.
The boy and the snake are best friends, as Chan raised the snake since it hatched six years before Azhe was born.

As soon as he realized the snake would not harm his son, he let spend time with each other the way most children spend with a golden retriever.

Azhe says he cuddles and kisses the snake, and that the python is “very careful with me and never squeezes too hard.”

I doubt anyone would mess with a kid with a 220 pound python.
