New Zealand jails German underwear gecko smuggler
A German man who tried to smuggle 44 live geckos and skinks out of New Zealand in his underwear has been sentenced to 12 weeks in jail.
The Christchurch court heard Hans Kurt Kubus, 58, had sewn pouches into his clothing to hide the protected animals as he had gone through the airport.
Officials said the lizards could have sold for up to $2,000 (£1,239)each.
Kubus had pleaded guilty to capturing the animals, but said they were for his own collection and not for sale.
( Yeah, I always knew Germans we weird…maybe he just like the way it felt! ) I think I saw some camtasia videos on youtube about that…
