This is not the actual smuggled pet, in fact this is a tortoise, not a turtle.
A curious story comes out of China this week, as the South China Morning Post News reports that a man tried to smuggle his “beloved” pet turtle inside of a KFC hamburger. As the boxed hamburger/turtle went through X-ray screening at the airport, security noticed “odd protrusions” poking out of the burger. The man is quoted as saying, “There’s no turtle in there, just a hamburger,” and furthered, “There’s nothing special to see inside.” You know, except a turtle.
