A 30-year-old Ramat Gan resident was arrested at Ben Gurion International Airport on Thursday for allegedly smuggling more than 70 reptiles, including dangerous anacondas, into Israel illegally.

Police detectives tracked the suspect from when she landed through passport control until she collected her baggage. When she left the terminal toward the parking lot, the detectives stopped her to check her luggage, where they found the reptiles, including dozens of snakes, giant anacondas, turtles, and rare lizards, hidden in cloth sacks and socks.

The suspect and the reptiles were transferred for investigation by the Nature and Parks Authority.
