Man Found With Snakes and Turtles Stuffed Inside Pantyhose at Miami International Airport

Some dudes might be worried about the TSA's airport body-scanning devices uncovering their, um, "snake," but last week at Miami International Airport, the imaging technology uncovered seven small snakes wrapped in ladies' hosiery stuffed inside a man's pants. Three turtles were also found.

The man was trying to board a flight headed to Brazil on TAM Airlines when the TSA uncovered the reptiles hidden in his pants. He was arrested and the animals were turned over to officers from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
