330 endangered tortoises were found being shipped from Madagascar to a Malaysian airport, trying to be passed off as “stones” in boxes. Customs searched the five cardboard boxes, finding a piece of luggage in each box where five ploughshare tortoises and 325 radiated tortoises were discovered, all of them still alive. Officials stated that both species of tortoises are considered critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
