A man was spotted taking a giant pet snake around the city centre, leaving onlookers in shock.
The man had the unusual pet around his neck as he strolled down the road in the scorching heat.
He was seen with two other friends around Queens Garden, in Hull.
The sighting took place on Monday afternoon, when the unidentified man was seen with the green and black reptile.
It is thought to be a python and was several feet long, reports Hull Live.
A passerby told Hull Live that she had spotted the snake and said that it gave her a "fright" and made her feel "sick".
“It made me feel so sick. I’m not scared of snakes but it gave me a bit of a fright," she said.
"I saw him walking around the fountain towards me and when I noticed the snake hanging around it’s neck.
"I jumped and did a 180 degree turn back. It looked like a python.
"It was minging [horrible] – the snake was just bobbing its head about looking at the fountain and I thought it might break free."
Man walks huge pet snake in the park next to children bizarre footage
This is not the first time that a snake has been spotted being carried around in the city centre.
Last month, a resident was left "alarmed" after spotting a man with a snake wrapped around his neck outside St Stephen's Shopping Centre.
In June a bizarre video showed how a man allowed his gigantic boa constrictor snake to have a slither around a public park in front of children and stunned parents.
In the clip, a two-metre-long reptile slides along the concrete while a child stands nearby to watch.
He then bends down and picks up the snake by its tail, before dragging it along over the ground while more stunned people watch.
The man then sits down on a bench next to a woman and a toddler, letting go of the snake which slithers towards a pram, while another child runs over to take a closer look.
