Snakes on a plane? Fuggedaboutit. In New York City, surprised subway riders discovered two snakes on a train.
Eric Hertzog said he got on the C train at Canal Street this week and saw the man with the snakes. One snake was hanging from the railing, while another was between his legs.
The man started playing with the snakes, Hertzog told NBC 4 New York. One passenger nearly sat beside the reptiles, but ran to the other side of the car when he realized the snakes were there, Hertzog said.
The man put the snakes in bags and then into his backpack before exiting at 14th Street, Hertzog said.
Hertzog posted the photos on his Instagram account (below).
Other than service animals and working dogs for law enforcement, the MTA prohibits bringing animals on trains unless "enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers."
