A passenger attempted to bring “emotional support” boa constrictor snake through TSA security checkpoint

A passenger attempted to bring “emotional support” boa constrictor snake through TSA security checkpointThe bizarre yet fascinating menagerie of animals detected by #TSA agents in carry-on baggage at US airports carries on into 2023.

This time the discovery was an old standby theme popularized in movies: snakes on a plane! Well, it was one 4-foot boa constrictor to be exact. And technically, it never made it to the plane. Still, it's intriguing.

The Transportation Security Administration tweeted Friday afternoon with the details from Tampa International Airport in Florida. The incident happened on December 15, TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein told CNN Travel in an email.

Farbstein said that the "TSA notified the airline that the woman (with the carry-on) was ticketed to fly on and the airline did not permit the snake on the plane."

Boa constrictors are nonvenomous snakes that kill their prey by squeezing them in their strong coils. Their natural range is northern Mexico to Argentina.
