An eight-year-old Israeli girl is best friends with an 11-foot python and enjoys swimming with it in her backyard pool.

Inbar, who has had the snake since she was young, has named the python Belle, inspired by Walt Disney’s famous film Beauty and the Beast.

In the film, the character dons a yellow ball gown in a famous dance scene, which resembles the colour of the snake.

According to Reuters, the eight-year-old always has had animals’ around, since her birth as she lives with her parents in an animal sanctuary in an agricultural community in southern Israel.

The duo has been spending a lot of time with each other as schools are currently shut due to the COVID-9 crisis.
“It helps me pass the time because I really like to hang out with snakes and sometimes I help snakes shed (their skin) and I help them to be happy during coronavirus,” Inbar said while talking to Reuters.
