A Czech man was caught in Argentina when he tried to board a plane with a suitcase full of live animals.
He had 247 lizards, snakes and mollusks.
The man was caught during the x-ray scan when technicians noticed "organic substances" moving around inside the bag.
When they opened it, they found the hundreds of reptiles, nine of which were poisonous species, packed into clear plastic containers.
Some of the animals were extremely rare and protected under certain acts.
It's good that officials found them in the x-ray scan because two died of lack of oxygen and it's assumed many more would have died during the flight.
Authorities believe the attempted smuggling was in connection with an exotic species smuggling ring.
The man could face up to ten years in prison!
That's what you get for trying to bring motherf*$%in' snakes on a motherf*$%in' plane!
