He decided to keep the snake and named it Long Long. One night, the animal saved his family’s life.

I was asleep when I felt something cold on my face. It was Long Long. He had never woken me up before. I thought nothing of it and went back to sleep, but Long Long grabbed my clothes with his teeth and whipped the bed with his tail. Then, he went to my mother’s bed and whipped her bed with his tail. … I woke up and smelt something burning, and saw my mother’s electric blanket was on fire, so I leapt up and turned it off.
