Lizards in the pants will land you in jail
Lizards in the pants are never a good idea. It's an even worse idea when you're boarding a plane. And an even worse idea if the lizards are rare and protected.
The Associated Press reports that a German man who stuffed 44 small lizards into his underwear before trying to board a flight has been sentenced to prison in New Zealand for plundering the country's protected species.
Hans K. Kubus, 58, will spend 14 weeks behind bars and must pay a $3,540 fine before being deported to Germany as soon as he is released, District Court Judge Colin Doherty ruled Tuesday.
