MIAMI (AP) -- The Transportation Security Administration says a man tried to board a TAM Airlines flight to Brazil with nylon bags filled with seven exotic snakes and three tortoises.

TSA spokesman Jonathon Allen says the man was stopped after
passing through a body scanner at Miami International Airport last
Thursday. Security officials spotted the nylon bags filled with snakes and tortoises stuffed inside the man's pants.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports the critters were taken by the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife. The unidentified passenger was arrested.
