Is That a Rare Iguana in Your Pocket or Are You Just Happy to See Me ?

 

Jereme James from California has been charged with smuggling three endangered iguanas from a nature into the United States from Fiji and may face up to five years in prison if found guilty.

Mr James came under suspicions after officials received a tip off that he was smuggling the protected reptiles in special compartment inside his prosthetic leg and had several specimens at his home.

The captured reptiles will now be now be placed in a protective breeding programme in the US, according to officials.

No offense, but consider submitting stories instead of picking on typos in a story given to you by a proven valued member of this online community.

"Mother Nature has taken her course."

I missed the part in the source where mother nature let the Captain Planet and the Planeteers capture his ass.

Still this strikes me kinda weird as breeding an endangered species,even though illegal, is kinda useful.

It doesn't take too much to point it out in others, but it is much more difficult to see it in yourself.
