Live King Cobras and Lizards Found in Package at JFK Airport

Customs agents at JFK airport seized a package containing LIVE King Cobras and geckos during a mail inspection. Well, that definitely doesn’t belong there.

USA Today reports 5 young King Cobras, which by the way are POISONOUS, were found along with three geckos in a Styrofoam package labeled ‘plastic tray.’

Luckily, they were able to intercept the package thanks to mail inspection by x-ray. Reportedly the package was shipped express from Hong Kong, but no one has any idea why they were there or where it was going.

The package has been turned over to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for further investigation.
In the meantime, I’m imagining the reaction of the investigators having to figure out where they came from. Let’s revisit this glorious scene from ‘Snakes on a Plane:’ **warning there are curses**
