You can also wear snakes in your pants

A Chinese traveller has been caught trying to smuggle over 100 live snakes into mainland China by cramming them into his trousers, report China’s customs authority.

The unnamed traveller was stopped by customs officers as he sought to slip out of Hong Kong and into the border city of Shenzhen, China Customs said in a statement on Tuesday (Jul 9).

„Upon inspection, customs officers discovered that the pockets of the trousers the passenger was wearing were packed with six canvas drawstring bags and sealed with tape,” the statement said.

The statement said officers seized 104 smakes, including milk snakes and corn snakes, many of which were non-native species. An accompanying video showed two border agents staring into transparent plastic bags filled with squirming red, pink and white snakes.

China is one of the world’s biggest animal trafficking hubs, but the country’s biosecurity and disease control laws forbid people from bringing in non-native species without permission.
