Juan Santamaría airport is where a lot of smuggling takes place. Usually the contraband is marijuana or cocaine.
But how about 100 frogs, 50 snakes and 20 small lizards?
That’s what airport police found in the luggage of a German tourist headed to Panamá. The man had arranged the animals cleverly in small plastic containers and even provided some lettuce as a snack for the trip.
Capturing and moving forest creatures is illegal, and the tourist was presented to prosecutors. He may face stiff fines.
