    In an extraordinary case of life imitating Snakes On a Plane, a man tried to smuggle a ball python onto a flight from Miami to Barbados on Sunday. The stowaway snake was concealed inside an external hard drive enclosure, which was itself placed within a checked bag.

    The bag was flagged by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) staff at Miami International Airport as it went through the luggage screening process. The python was then liberated and taken into custody by US Fish and Wildlife Services. The would-be snake smuggler was barred from the flight, and will be fined, according to TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz. Checking luggage containing banned items can result in fines as high as $10,000, as well as criminal referrals.
