A 'skinky' smuggling attempt
Traveling this week? You never know who -- or what -- you'll be sitting next to on an airplane, especially if you're traveling through LAX:
Michael Plank, 40, was detained by U.S. Customs agents after they discovered 15 live lizards stuffed into his money belt, officials with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service said Friday.
Plank was returning from Australia on Tuesday when agents found two geckos, 11 skinks and two monitor lizards in his possession.
The full story, which can be read on the Los Angeles Times web site, somehow resists the temptation to mention snakes and Samuel L. Jackson.
