MIAMI, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Authorities at a Miami airport said they found seven snakes and three tortoises concealed in the pants of a man seeking to fly to Brazil.

Jonathon Allen, a spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration, said officers at the Miami airport Thursday discovered the reptiles hidden inside nylon bags inside the pants of the TAM Airlines passenger, whose name was not released, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Allen said U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife officers took the man, and the reptiles, into custody.
