Miami Airport Scare: TSA Finds Live Snakes Hidden in Passenger’s Trousers

After the federal agency reported discovering snakes in a passenger’s pants at an airport checkpoint, Transportation Security Administration agents in South Florida were given a slithery surprise.

The TSA said that the finding of the reptile happened on Friday at Miami International Airport. Neither the passenger’s identity nor if they were arrested were disclosed by the agency.

Two thin pink snakes appear to have been retrieved from the passenger’s pants before they were allowed to board the aircraft, as seen in photos taken at the airport and given by TSA. The snakes are outside of a little bag in a camouflage color.
