  • Python and Gecko smuggling...

    I came to the station today to work on putting together some training classes that I'm going to teach in a couple of weeks. One of the criminal investigators came by my office and said "Hey brother, I saw something on the news that made me think of you yesterday..."

    My first reaction... "Uh ohhhh".... LOL

    Then he told me about this snake smuggling video. So, it wasn't the smuggling that made him think about me... it was the snakes.

    Turns out the guy was smuggling ball pythons and geckos.

    Check it out.

    Its unfortunate that this kind of thing is seen as "creepy" by most people, and also sheds a horrible light on the reptile industry as a whole. However, I must admit, I chuckled quite a bit when I saw that they were just normal Ball Pythons and albino Leos. hehe.

        Seriously though we should send him a great big letter of thanks for painting respectable herp owners in such a good light.

                    I wonder if they did a body cavity search? Maybe he was hiding the pieds up there.
