Is that a Lizard in Your Pants, or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Can't it be both?

A man was caught by Norwegian customs carrying a tarantula in his bag, and a further 14 royal pythons and 10 albino leopard geckos taped to his body, media reported on Monday.
The 22-year-old Norwegian was stopped in a routine check by Kristiansand customs after arriving on a ferry from Denmark, newspaper Faedrelandsvennen reported.

Customs found the tarantula, before deciding to give him a full body search that revealed 14 stockings -- one for each snake -- taped around his torso, top selling tabloid VG said.
Although Norway isn't the world's most ideal climate for pythons, the constrictors have been known to escape and cause problems elsewhere.


  1. Reptile mule? Sounds like something out of 'The Island of Dr. Moreau'

  2. Ahhh, he was just trying to get intouch with the reptilian portion of his brain. That's all.
