Earlier this week we reminded you that snakes have no place in the subway system. We've got enough (sometimes literal!) shit to deal with down there, so we certainly don't need a slithering reptile snapping its tongue at us. We especially don't need that tongue to be uncaged, which is ILLEGAL ANYWAY. But noooooo one listens—this guy was spotted at 3 a.m. Thursday, taking this nightmare fuel out of its carrier right there in the subway car.

To quote the official MTA rulebook: "No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passenger."
