I saw this and had a bit of a chuckle over it so i thought I would post it.

The hamster seems pretty happy with his new home and roommate.

Very cool! I have to wonder if that hampster's most pressing thought is, "Is today the day my best friend eats me?"

I was wondering that as well.
It is a snake after all.They have no friends they are loyal to.

The snake was probably fed prior to filming this. Thus not hungry. I'd wager it was thinking, "Bed time snack, you irritating rodent."

My thoughts exactly were that the snake wasn't hungry.
My snake would get like that sometimes but I would never leave the food in there with him for fear of the other animal sensing whats up and killing it.
If they don't want to eat then they will literally do nothing,sometimes they won't even bite,just like in this video.
Mine used to get all scared and wimpy til I took his food out.

But did they remove the hamster afterwards? That is what I want to know. Or did they actuall meant to feed a live hamster? I hope the hamster is doing all right.

I think from what I can tell they just left him in there.
I am sure the hamster was good...oops,I mean is good.
Yes they were going to feed it to him.They couldn't find any frozen mice so they found a live hamster.
Sometimes a snake is picky with its food.

We have had this happen. Snake just isn't hungry. Would even have a mouse stick around for a couple of weeks. Even find him sleeping on the snake.

Then one day you come home and he is gone.

Actually, that hamster looks a little big for that snake. He should probably have a mouse. They won't tackle too large a meal as the rodents can tear them up.

Also, sometimes snakes won't eat a diseased rodent.

I thought it was a bit large as well.
I think also the fact they had him on dead food and just threw in a live hamster says something too.Sometimes they breed and raise them to not have those killing instincts.
I am kinda amazed you leave mice in there when he is not hungry.
I have been taught that you could lose your snake if the rodent figures out whats going on.
I almost had a gerbil take out my ball python until I intervened.I learnt my lesson.
Thankfully after a few months I got him on dead food.

having owned various species of snakes over the past 30 years(yes i'm a snake buff) i can say by experience that snake was not hungry- if it was that hamster would be a lump inside the snake.
but also sometimes even when they are hungry they refuse to eat- and force feeding is not fun
but one thing you NEVER do is leave a rodent in the tank for long if the snake doesn't kill it because the table will turn and you will have a dead snake
learned that one the hard way when i was a kid
