Man using live snake as face mask boards bus in England
A man was spotted using a live snake as a makeshift face mask on a public bus in England.

The unidentified man was taking the bus from Swinton to Manchester on Monday with the snake wrapped around his neck when another passenger snapped a photo of the bizarre moment.

A passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, said she first believed the man was only wearing a β€œfunky mask” until the reptile started slithering over the handrails, according to the BBC.


The woman said she found the incident β€œreally funny” and the other passengers didn’t seem bothered by the serpent.

β€œNo one batted an eyelid,” she said.

Authorities said a snake is not a proper face covering during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Government guidance clearly states that this needn't be a surgical mask and that passengers can make their own or wear something suitable, such as a scarf or bandana,” a Transport for Greater Manchester spokesperson said in a statement, according to the outlet.

"While there is a small degree of interpretation that can be applied to this, we do not believe it extends to the use of snakeskin - especially when still attached to the snake," the statement said.

In England, face masks are required on public transportation such as planes, trains, and buses to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Snakes are cool. I just moved a big python off my driveway last week, easy 8' long, didn't bat an eyelid when I picked it up (not that they have eyelids to bat😁). I always try to move them off roads when I see them to stop them being run over, even the poisonous ones. Probably my favourite animal.

I like snakes, but if you are not in India you should have captured it. It is an invasive alien species that does not belong there. I'm guessing you're in Florida, they are a big problem. Sounds like it was pretty tame, people let their pets escape and they get out in the Glades and wreak havoc. You could actually sell it to a pet store for several hundred dollars. I believe the gubmint here in Flahdah will give you $50 for a dead one, I've been thinking of going hunting in the Glades for em.

We are quite different, you and I, in that respect. I loathe snakes. Hate them. Utterly despise them. Any time I have a bad dream, it always involves a nigger or a snake and usually both. I kill every snake I see. I've been involved in minor accidents trying to run them over on the road. Pro tip: "But there was this big ass snake, Your Honor!!" is not a defense for discharging 12 gauge in the city limits, unless said snake posed an immediate danger.

Snakes will leave you alone if you leave them alone, most people get bit trying to kill them. Where I am we have several of the most poisonous snakes on earth, a couple of which are notoriously bad tempered, but I've never had a problem with them. I've had to kill a few poisonous snakes that have found their way inside the house when I couldn't encourage them to move or catch them but that's it. They're great for controlling rats around your house and I've picked up quite a few pythons to put up in my roof for that very purpose. #snakelivesmatter😁

Saw a black snake yesterday at work, it was definitely trying to get away from me. I blame the jews, the amount of bad press snakes get, they must know.

Cool. Don't see many red belly blacks around here anymore because of the cane toads. Pretty snakes though.

I believe OP @phoenixrising is in Australia, so the pythons legitimately live there. Apparently they are doing very well in suburban areas becasue of plentiful food (possums, cats, chickens...)

Generally Australia has far too many poisonous snakes and insects for my comfort level, and it's also hotter than hell. I am happy to live in Canada where almost everything dies over the winter so thankfully you won't find a python slithering onto your nightstand (!) as a normal occurrence.

I have heard of the python problem in Florida though, I can only imagine. The utter carelessness and stupidity of people just releasing their pets into the wild angers me. Everything does well in Florida becasue it's warm and there is plenty of food, so they all become invasive species at the expense of native ones.

Ha, ha, I thought I was the only one who did that. I also pick up turtles that wander into the road and move them into the brush on the roadside. NC has a lot of reptiles and amphibians, so I come across them a lot, especially out toward the coast. I have to say frogs are probably my favorites, though. There's a big bullfrog that lives in the culvert in front of my house. I think he likes the reverb he gets from the pipe...

I used to work with a guy who got busted for shooting a mole that popped its head out of a hole for too long. Shot it with a 357. He was extremely pissed at the things wrecking his lawn.

I'm down in OZ mate, we've got the whole gamut of wildlife down here, quite a few of which will kill you or seriously ruin your day. I've read about the Everglades having a problem with introduced snakes (after one of the hurricanes destroyed a snake breeding facility there iirc) particularly the Burmese python which grow quite large.
