Norwegian police had a bit of a surprise when they noticed something moving on the body of a 22-year-old man getting off a ferry. They found a tarantula in a bag during a routine stop and then in a strip search discovered 14 royal pythons and 10 albino leopard geckos taped to his body. This was without the use of baggy pants, here.
The man had taped the snakes in 14 socks to his body. They then found 10 cans taped to his legs, each containing a lizard.
According to Helge Breilid at Kristiansand customs the tip off was not hard to spot: “Customs officers quickly realized the man was smuggling animals, because his whole body was in constant motion.”
The walking reptile house was arrested for illegal smuggling.

One need not tape a gecko to one’s body. It’s need to bite and hold on until a credit card can be found is legendary. Just aim and “stick.”
I know a couple that at one time kept 2 snakes, good sized snakes 2-3 feet long. Well, St. Louis had one of its frequent, power outages and it was winter. Their apartment got pretty cold so they each put ‘their’ snake in its own pillow case, then each put a pillow case under their jacket and spent the night and most of the next day going from one restaurant (all night Pancake House, White Castle etc) to another in various parts of the county that hadn’t lost power and killed time over coffee and junk food until the power in their neighborhood was restored. The snakes did just fine. 🙂
Maybe the young man was just a herpetologist who liked being close to his work.
I just hope Samuel Jackson stars in the movie 🙂
Ants in your pants on steroids,LOL!!
