So Easy a Cave Man Could Do It
Smuggling geckos in your socks.

Weird, but it seems to be a trend lately. There was the woman caught recently smuggling parrots under her coat.

Although I think the winner in this contest has to be the man who strapped live aligators under his coat. I've heard of an alligator belt - but that's a bit ridiculous.

Apparently however, strapping live alligators to yourself is not as uncommon as you might think. Guards noted that the woman looked "strangely fat".

UPDATE: And then there's THIS idiot caught smuggling 175 chameleons in Thailand. Money quote: "The man who sold them said they changed colour to make themselves invisible against any background, but it did not work."

    I can't believe I'm going to pass on the python smuggling joke.

    That’s nothing. You should ask TFG how he smuggles gerbils across state lines.

    ... oh, damn, you just commented here. Do you use the python to root out the gerbils?
