    Fifty juvenile Saltwater crocodiles have been seized at London's Heathrow Airport after it was discovered the animals had not been packed properly. Each of the five boxes had room for only four crocs, however, each box contained no less than ten.

    @Harimoni Proudswift it would be nice if you could expand on the details of this, i.e was this a smuggling case of "Salties" from Australia or just a case of a legal shipment with more animals packed in shipping boxes than the allowed amount to try and circumvent the shipping costs ?????

    It's puzzling they went to the effort of getting the legal permits etc but then dodging the packaging up.

    Haven't these people watched animal airport on Netflix lol

    I wish they’d bring out more episodes. Great show. Poor crocs... even if they were destined for a farm.
