Python mule betrayed by tarantula



Long story short, from The Scotsman: "Customs officials searched him on Sunday after finding a tarantula in one of his bags."

Here's the article.


Norwegian tries to smuggle 14 pythons

A man has been arrested in Norway trying to smuggle two dozen snakes and geckos into the country by taping them to his body.

Customs agents said the Norwegian citizen, 22, was arrested in Kristiansand after getting off a ferry from Denmark. He had 14 royal pythons and ten albino leopard geckos hidden under his clothes.

The non-venomous snakes were stowed in stockings duct-taped to the man's abdomen [top], and the geckos were in boxes taped to his thighs [below].

Python Betrayed By Norwegians!
A Royal Python has been arrested in Denmark after trying to smuggle in 14 Norwegians by eating them. Customs agents apprehended the lethargic yet highly uncooperative snake after noticing the suspicious-looking outline of 14 large humans bulging out the normally svelte shape of the reptile as it attempted to slither past authorities.
