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 “funky mask” until the reptile started slithering over the handrails, according to the BBC.
"Government guidance clearly states that this neednt 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.
