Well, this is an interesting way to start a Wednesday:
U.S. officials say a man tried to board a flight from Miami to Brazil with bags of exotic snakes and tortoises stuffed in his pants.
Transportation Security Administration spokesman Jonathon Allen says the man was stopped after passing through a body scanner at Miami International Airport on Thursday. Security officials spotted the nylon bags filled with seven snakes and three tortoises hidden in the man's pants.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel newspaper reports the animals were taken by the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife. The unidentified passenger was arrested.
