A great aviation story in the news today! The woman was trying to get the tadpoles though customs in Guangzhou Airport in China travelling to South Korea. Customs officers noticed and made the woman spit them out in a bucket. It’s an offence in some countries to smuggle tadpoles and could result in a full scale alert.
When the woman was questioned said she was given the tadpoles by a friend and didn’t want to lose them. Airport staff said this is not the first time a passenger has tried to smuggle amphibians through airport security.
