Croc Update (Luggage Edition)

South African caught at airport with crocodiles in luggage - Telegraph: "A South African man has been caught trying to smuggle 70 live animals including crocodiles through airport customs in his luggage.

Experts believe the suspect had been smuggling the animals into South Africa to sell as part of the lucrative global trade in endangered species.

The 28-year-old was arrested after apparently stashing several of the valuable reptiles in his bags, along with dozens of snakes, a turtle, spiders, scorpions and frogs."
