2 leopard geckos found in containers wrapped with towel in car at Woodlands Checkpoint

Two leopard geckos were discovered in two separate container boxes wrapped with a towel in a Malaysia-registered car at Woodlands Checkpoint on Oct 16.

In a Facebook post on Oct 18, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said an officer had found the animals.

A 31-year-old male Malaysian was referred to the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) for investigation.

The leopard geckos are currently under the care of Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

ICA added in its post titled 'Lizard-do(two)-do-do': "Our borders are our first line of defence in safeguarding Singapore’s security.

"The ICA will continue to conduct security checks on passengers and vehicles at the checkpoints to prevent attempts to smuggle in undesirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives and other contrabands."
