A Python Screening the Luggage of a Woman


Transportation Security Administration officers were in for a slithery the luggage of a woman traveling.

The lion is a species in the cat family. The lion is dimorphic; males are larger than females. Male lions have a prominent mane.

TSA employees intercepted a Ball python. It is royal python.

According to TSA spokesperson Sari Koshetz, the scaly contraband ‘had been artfully concealed inside the electronics of a hard drive’ and stashed inside a checked bag en route to Barbados.


During the security screening, a TSA luggage scanner detected an ‘organic mass’ inside the woman’s bag.

Koshetz says a bomb expert then examined the bag and discovered the live snake, which was nestled inside a nylon stocking.

‘While this mass inside the electronic device was obviously not an imminent terrorist threat to the traveling public, the kind we are always on high alert to, the interception did prevent a possible wildlife threat on an aircraft,’ she stated.

The passenger was fined, and the snake was taken into custody by US Fish and Wildlife Services. Neither woman nor snake made the flight.

Koshetz noted that animals of various species have been known to escape and chew through wires ‘with fatal results.’
