MIAMI (WPEC) — The TSA says a woman tried to smuggle a baby python out of the country.

The Transportation Security Administration shared an Instagram photo of the snake, which agents said the passenger hid in an external hard drive packed in her checked bag.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service took possession of the young ball python and issued a citation to the traveler. She and the python missed their flight to Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados.
