A nutz California man strapped 15 live lizards to his chest and tried to walk through customs at Los Angeles International Airport
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says Michael Plank of Lomita was returning from Australia when customs agents found two geckos, two monitor lizards and 11 smaller lizards fastened to his body.
He has been sentenced to 15 months in prison and was also fined $2,000 and will be on supervised release for three years after completing his sentence.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Dennis Mitchell says the animals are at the San Diego Zoo but he wouldn’t comment on what would happen to them.
