Stopping animal smugglers in their tracks
Eight rare tortoises are recovering after being posted thousands of miles to the UK in a plastic lunchbox!
The Indian Star tortoises, which are a protected species, were found in a parcel that was flown from Thailand!
UK Border officials cracked the smuggling plot and said the tortoises, which are worth more than £2,000, were lucky to survive.
A man from Manchester has been arrested in connection with the find. The tortoises are waiting to be re-homed.
Indian Star tortoises originate from India and Sri Lanka and are popular as exotic pets, but need specialist care.
Charles MacKay from the UK Border Agency said: "People illegally buying and selling endangered wildlife makes it more likely they will become extinct.
"That's why UK Border Agency Officers work hard to stop it happening."
