A man has been arrested in Austria, after he was caught trying to smuggle 74 protected chameleons into the country.

The reptiles are from Tanzania, and range from one week old, to fully grown adults.

The 56-year-old was stopped at Vienna airport, having tried to hide the chameleons in socks and empty ice cream cartons.

It's thought that the animals could sell for about €37,000 each, on the black market.
