Snakes on a plane just literally.

A passenger flying from Germany to Russia caused a stir when it was discovered he has 20 snakes in his pocket.

The man said that he had bought the snakes at a market in Germany, The Local reported, quoting RP Online.

“The reptiles were in containers, packed in bags, carried in hand luggage. There are no documents available for the reptiles,” Sheremetyevo International Airport press service said in a statement, Newsweek reported. “The species of snakes will be determined by specialists, but according to preliminary information, they are not a poisonous species.”

The snakes were in quarantine in Moscow because the passenger lacked proper documents, including veterinarians, to the tubing from Dusseldorf to Russia.

According to reports, the German authorities noted there were no incidents at the security check before departure in Düsseldorf, and said: the wearing of snakes on a plane is not illegal, but the appropriate approval is necessary.
