A 43-year old man was arrested at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport when he attempted to board a flight to Israel, German Customs said in a press release.
The incident took place in 2018 but was only made public this week.
The man attempted to smuggle a 15.75 inch boa constrainter snake in a bag he kept in his pants, Fox News reported.
The reptile was brought to a rescue center in Brandenburg, Germany, after being removed from the man at the airport.
