A man has been arrested trying to smuggle over 100 live snakes into mainland China by cramming them into his trousers.

According to media reports, the unnamed traveller was stopped by customs officers as he sought to slip out of Hong Kong and into the border city of Shenzhen.

“Upon inspection, customs officers discovered that the pockets of the trousers the passenger was wearing were packed with six canvas drawstring bags and sealed with tape,” the statement said.

“Once opened, each bag was found to contain living snakes in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours,” it added.

The video showed two border agents peering into transparent plastic bags filled with squirming red, pink and white snakes.

The statement said officers seized 104 of the scaly reptiles, including milk snakes and corn snakes.
