In China, snakes can be farmed and eaten, but smuggling them alive is illegal. A man was caught at Futian Port with 104 live snakes, including milk snakes and Texas rat snakes, hidden in his pants. Customs officers found six canvas bags filled with snakes during an inspection. Many of the species are non-native, and it’s illegal to carry live animals into China. The man’s punishment was not specified. China is a major hub for illegal animal trafficking.
