Over 300 Tarantulas, Scorpions And Giant Cockroaches Seized At Airport – Here's What's Snappenin'

They found 230 trapdoor spiders and tarantulas, 67 giant cockroaches, and eight scorpions inside the bag.
That’s exactly what happened at El Dorado International Airport in Bogota, Colombia recently.
2 German citizens claimed they were taking the 232 spiders and tarantulas, 67 giant cockroaches, a scorpion with seven young, and nine spider eggs to Europe for “academic purposes.”
The over 300 insects were found inside 210 little plastic containers stored between rolls of film in the luggage of two German citizens.
