TALMEI ELAZAR, ISRAEL - SEPTEMBER 11: (ISRAEL OUT) Meirav Stardinner receives a snake massage from Ada Barak at Barak's snake spa on September 11, 2008 in Talmei Elazar, Israel. Barack's income comes mostly from exhibiting her plants which eat everything from insects to small mammals. She discovered snakes' therapeutic value after letting people hold them after her act "Some people said that holding the snakes made them feel better, relaxed," she says. "One old lady said it was soothing, like a cold compress." Now she uses a combination of big snakes for deep massage and little ones for light massage, though all are non-venemous.

Call it social “Hiss-Distancing” but one bus rider in Great Britain did not have a mask for his face so he used a snake instead.

“It was definitely entertaining,” said an unnamed 46-year-old woman, who recalled the man boarding the Swinton-to-Manchester shuttle with the “snake wrapped around his face.”

However, his fashion statement didn’t amuse the Manchester-based bus company, which said it’s “shocked at these reports and are taking them very seriously.”

“The safety of our customers and employees is our absolute priority,” said a spokesperson for the transit firm. “We expect all of our customers to comply with the government’s rules on wearing a suitable face covering on public transport.”
