i’ll never forget one time i was standing on the D train platform at 125th.
i had my headphone volume at “do not talk to me“.
i saw these random folks trying to get my attention and pointing at my foot.
when i look down…
THIS RAT IS SNIFFING MY SHOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
screamed like a a whole girl and ran down the platform.
rats in new yawk do not respect us,
but i think we might have the answer for their asses.
look at what was found on a train platform over the weekend via “the daily mail“…
A video of an enormous black snake slithering across a New York City subway platform caused quite the stir on social media this weekend – a rare sighting in a city more accustomed to rats and roaches rather than reptiles.
The several-foot-long snake slowly slid its way across an unidentified above-ground Brooklyn subway stop on Sunday.
The bizarre encounter was uploaded to Twitter by a train operator, who wrote: ‘Thought I have seen it all but this can’t be real.’
In the footage, a man can be seen casually standing close by to the reptile, likely waiting for an in-coming train. It’s unclear if he’s aware of the creature weaving just feet behind him.
Reports online suggest that the snake appeared to be a non-venomous black Eastern Rat Snake, which can grow up to seven feet in length, according to the National Wildlife Federation.
Their natural habitat typically extends from Connecticut to South Carolina and as far west as Kansas and Oklahoma, the federation said.
Luckily, the Eastern Rat Snake are largely harmless to humans, preferring to feed on rodents, frogs and eggs, rather than oblivious commuters.
One viewer of the video jested that New York ‘might’ve found a solution to the whole rat problem. City could save some money on pesticides (that rarely work).’
yo when this popped up on my twitter tl,
i sent it to everyone i know:
If you sssee sssomething, sssay sssomething.
But seriously, this is a new one for us and we are investigating. If you see a snake or any other suspicious reptiles, please immediately contact an MTA employee. https://t.co/qhCFPJpnRs
