Reptile smuggling

A man has been arrested at Miami (US) international airport with seven exotic snakes and three tortoises stuffed into his trousers.

The US Transportation Security Administration said the man had seven exotic snakes and three tortoises wrapped in nylon bags that had been stuffed into his pants.

He was discovered as he went through a body scanner at one of the airport’s security checkpoints and arrested by US Fish and Wildlife Service officials for violating animal trafficking laws.

Authorities declined to identify the man or offer any explanation for his botched attempt at reptile smuggling.
