22-year-old Norwegian man was apprehended in the southern town of Kristiansand after getting off a ferry from Hirtshals, Denmark by customs officers when he was to smuggle 14 royal pythons taped to his chest in stockings and 10 albino leopard geckos in boxes to taped to his legs.
Custom officers found the reptiles after discovering a live tarantula in his bag.
“He told us he was crazy about reptiles,” the head of the local customs office, Helge Breilid, told AFP news agency on Sunday.
The snakes, which are not endangered, are the smallest of the python family and are not venomous.
Not sure if he was that crazy about reptiles, but he sure does sound “crazy“.
