On Tuesday, five king cobra snakes and three geckos were discovered during an  X-ray in U.S. Customs and Border Protection at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). The reptiles were contained within a Styrofoam container that carried a label claiming that the package contained a “plastic tray.”

“Our CBP officers perform numerous daily tasks to protect the United States from potential dangers. This seizure demonstrates our wide-ranging responsibility in protecting our borders and our partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,” said Leon Hayward, acting director of CBP’s New York Field Operations.
