Subway Train Passenger Seen Playing With Two Massive Snakes

You've heard of snakes on a plane, but what about snakes on a train? A man in New York City was seen casually playing with not one, but TWO massive snakes on a subway train.

And in case you were wondering, nope, that's not allowed. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority rules clearly state: "No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container" -- that part definitely wasn't followed -- "and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers."

We don't know about the rest of the car, but the woman right next to him doesn't seem to mind at all as she continues to focus on her reading.

Even when he lifts one of the snakes up to hang on a railing.

The passenger's reaction, or lack thereof, seems to be getting about as much attention as the two snakes.

As New York Magazine puts it, "Either she's his over-it wife or she's the most chill person in New York City. Maybe both."

And apparently this whole "snakes on a train" problem is nothing new.

Gothamist shared some New York Times articles about snakes on the subway dating back to 1929.

And you might remember back in 2011 a 3-foot-long boa constrictor slithered away from its owner on the Boston subway and wasn't found until a month later.

We guess those rules are in place for good reason. The snake owner from this recent incident eventually put his snakes in his backpack and exited the train. Looks like he didn't get busted for breaking the rules this time.
