The news alert, shared by the verified Instagram handle "," features an image showing a pair of hands, one gloved and one bare, holding a semi-transparent sack filled with wriggling snakes. The headline reads, "Man in China caught smuggling 100 live snakes in his trousers," with the words "smuggling" and "trousers" highlighted in yellow for emphasis.

This bizarre event has triggered a wide range of responses from users on Reddit. One user humorously commented, "Is that 100 live snakes in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?" Another user suggested Googling "Chinese trouser snakes" for more information. The incident even led to jokes referencing the infamous line, "Snakes you say?
