It was a shock for everyone, but when Keng Liang Wong's bag ripped open on a luggage conveyor belt at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, 95 live boa constrictors spilled out into the airport.

Wong, who was arrested on Aug. 26, will meet his lawyer on Monday to decide on a plea, the U.K. Daily Mail is reporting.

Smuggling in endangered animals is punishable by up to seven years in prison in Malaysia.

According to the British newspaper, though, this is not the first time Wong has tangled with the law over animal smuggling. He spent six years in a U.S. prison after he was arrested in 1998 for smuggling protected reptiles into North America.
