Passenger Caught With Live Rare Species Animals At Chennai Airport; Held


Chennai: Some rare animals have been found in a passenger’s backpack at Chennai airport on Saturday.

Post examinations, the officials recovered one DeBrazza Monkey, fifteen KingSnakes, five Ball Pythons, and two Aldabra Tortoises from the checked-in baggage.
