MIAMI (CBSMiami) — A California man is under arrest, accused of smuggling king cobras in potato chip cans.

Authorities say he was arrested on suspicion of importing reptiles.
A news release says that agents also found three albino, Chinese soft-shelled turtles in the box, shipped through the U.S. Post Office.
