A man boarded a bus using a snake as a face covering.
The commuter and his reptilian mask, which was wrapped around his neck and mouth, were seen on a bus from Swinton to Manchester on Monday.
One passenger said she thought the passenger was wearing a “funky mask” until she spotted it slithering over handrails.
Transport bosses in Greater Manchester confirmed a snake was not a valid face covering.
The eyewitness, who asked to remain anonymous, said she found the incident “really funny”, adding the animal did not seem to be bothering any of her fellow passengers.
She said: “No-one batted an eyelid.”
Authorities have, however, indicated that a snake is not a proper face covering during the COVID-19 pandemic.
