Smuggled snakes

ENVIRONMENTAL INSPECTORS in South Africa found 10 poisonous snakes hidden inside video cassette cases which were inside a large box at a post office.

The package, which came from the Czech Republic, contained cobras, vipers and even Australian Taipans, which are considered the most venomous snake in the world. Police launched an investigation and the snakes were taken to a zoo for safekeeping.
