“A man was caught by Norwegian customs carrying a tarantula in his bag, and a further 14 royal pythons and 10 albino leopard geckos taped to his body, media reported Monday.
 
The 22-year-old Norwegian was stopped in a routine check by Kristiansand customs after arriving on a ferry from Denmark, newspaper Faedrelandsvennen reported.
 
Customs found the tarantula, before deciding to give him a full body search that revealed 14 stockings — one for each snake — taped around his torso, top selling tabloid VG said.”

This sounds like an ordeal a contestant on “Fear Factor” would be forced to endure. I would pass out before the first snake was taped to my body.
 
Custom officials became suspicious when they saw that the man’s body was in constant motion. I think the albino leopard gecko has more brains cells that this joker.
 
The man is guilty not only of smuggling reptiles, but he should also be charged with cruelty to animals. To cram a reptile into a small container is animal abuse.
