Man Caught Attempting to Smuggle Dozens of Tarantulas in Luggage

A Polish man was arrested at the Cayenne-Félix Eboué Airport in French Guiana in late August after attempting to smuggle some creepy, crawly, and hairy tarantulas through airport security.

According to Agence France Presse, the man was in possession of nearly 100 spiders, including 38 adult spiders, some 50 adolescent spiders, and dozens of egg-filled cocoons, when he was stopped by airport security.

The man, who was attempting to board a plane to Paris, told authorities he's "passionate about insects," while he was getting arrested on Aug. 25.
