THE STAR (Petaling Jaya, Malaysia) 31 March 99 300 snakes seized in Golok
Rantau Panjang: Three hundred highly poisonous snakes, which are traditionally consumed for health reasons, were seized at the border town of Golok here on Monday night.
General Operations Force (PGA) Ninth Battalion commanding officer Supt Salleh Mat Rasid said a 33-year-old man, a local, was arrested for trying to smuggle in the snakes.
He said the snakes, most of which were ular sendok and cobras, were to be taken to Tanah Merah for distribution to restaurants for its blood and flesh.
Supt Salleh believed that the reptiles were worth at least RM6,000.
He said this was the first case of snake smuggling activity at the Kelantan-Thai border since 1995.

STATES NEWS SERVICE (USA) 02 April 99 Two Indicted For Importing Lizards
Miami, Florida: Two men are charged with illegally importing lizards into the U-S. Howard Moss and Robert Kelton have been indicted for bringing more than eleven-thousand Haitian curly-tailed lizards into Florida in 1995 and 1996.
Haiti bans the export of such reptiles but the pair was able to get around the ban by using fraudulent documents claiming the lizards were from elsewhere in the Caribbean. They face a maximum of 14 years in prison and nearly two-Million dollars in fines.
