Smuggled crocodile skin fills up an entire basketball court

Authorities in Yunnan province recently seized enough pieces of smuggled crocodile skin to stop people from playing basketball.
A whopping 1,213 pieces of crocodile skin were laid out on a basketball court on Monday by border control officers working near the Chinese border with Vietnam.
The smuggled skin was discovered concealed inside a white van at the Red River checkpoint after officers felt the vans driver was hiding something.

And indeed he was. The crocodile skins have been valued at more than 1 million yuan. They are often used to make luxury handbags.
