Reptile smuggler

A Californian man has been charged with using his false leg to smuggle three endangered iguanas from a nature reserve in Fiji to the United States.  He is alleged to have constructed a special compartment inside his prosthetic limb to move the reptiles.
“It was uncomfortable, a bit itchy and there was a strange smell,” said one of the iguanas.
“Our investigation was limp, we kneeded a break but once we uncovered his plan and went out on a limb he was stumped and his lawyers won’t have a leg to stand on,’ said an overworked Customs officer.
‘It’s an unusual case, but we can handle it,’ said a court official, ‘we have reptiles in here most days.’
