Chinese customs said they had seized 104 of the reptiles, including milk snakes and corn snakes, many of which were non-native species.

China has detained a man after custom officials “discovered” more than 100 live snakes in his pants.

According to authorities, the man was stopped in his tracks at Futian Port on the border between the Chinese administrative region of Hong Kong and the mainland city of Shenzhen.

Customs officials found six cloth bags with snakes hidden in the man’s clothing.

“Upon inspection, customs officers discovered that the pockets of the trousers the passenger was wearing were packed with six canvas drawstring bags and sealed with tape,” the statement said.

    Too bad he wasn’t on a plane. We could have called Samuel L Jackson to assist.

        I don’t know, “I HAVE HAD IT WITH THESE MOTHERFUCKING SNAKES IN MY MOTHERFUCKING PANTS!” is pretty catchy as movie lines go.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    China has detained a man after custom officials “discovered” more than 100 live snakes in his pants.

    According to authorities, the man was stopped in his tracks at Futian Port on the border between the Chinese administrative region of Hong Kong and the mainland city of Shenzhen.

    “Upon inspection, customs officers discovered that the pockets of the trousers the passenger was wearing were packed with six canvas drawstring bags and sealed with tape,” the statement said.

    “Once opened, each bag was found to contain living snakes in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors.”

    Chinese laws prohibit the import of non-native animals.

    The customs report did not elaborate on what penalties the man would face.
