    What the hell is wrong with people today? I hate the TSA some days but maybe they should have given him a pistol-whipping for attempting something this stupid!

    Man tries to sneak snakes on a plane, TSA says

    By Todd Wright, WTVJ

    A Miami International Airport passenger is in trouble after being caught with snakes in his pants while trying to board a flight.

    The Transportation Security Administration said Monday the seven cold-blooded reptiles were discovered on the male passenger by security scanners on Aug. 25.

    It was not clear where in the man's pants the snakes were hidden or if the snakes were venomous.

    But the unidentified passenger didn't stop at sneaking snakes on a plane, authorities allege. He also had three tortoises hidden in a nylon bag concealed in his pants, TSA spokesman Jon Allen said.

    The exotic animals were confiscated by the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife and the man was arrested for trafficking illegal wildlife.

    Exotics smuggling is extremely common in FL. Normally it's baby constrictors of some kind if they are keeping them on their persons. It must be profitable even though the real money is in home bred custom colors primarily in burmese and ball pythons. Some of the wilder colors and patterns can fetch over $20,000. However, there is a market for venomous exotics as well. Which is disturbing because, if Burmese, Rock and Reticulated pythons can adapt to the climate, why can't the cobras and various exotic vipers as well?
