The 24-year-old smuggler checked in for a flight to Bangkok from Sydney airport last Friday but Customs officials allegedly spotted and confiscated his reptile stash when his bag was being screened.

The haul included 24 shingleback lizards, 16 bluetongue lizards, three black-headed pythons and an endangered albino carpet python.

The albino python is extremely rare and is so endangered that numbers are believed to be as low as 100.


The man, from Bonnet Bay in New South Wales, has been granted conditional bail to appear in the Downing Centre Local Court, Sydney, on March 24.


========================================================

I can't stand people like this. These scumbags put many people at risk with their illegal activity. Often times, these people introduce species to a different environment which wreck havoc on native wildlife. Most importantly put several hundred travelers and airport personnel at risk should any of these animals escape.
I'd rather see this scumbag punished in Thailand where he was headed instead of in Australia where the laws are more lenient.
