A number of illegal exotic snakes and lizards with a $20,000 street value have been seized by police during a vehicle stop on the Sturt Highway in NSW.
About 3.30pm on Australia Day a 43-year-old Bilpin man and a 34-year-old from Theresa Park were spoken to by police at Hay.
A NSW Highway Patrol vehicle search revealed three exotic snakes and two native shingle back lizards.
The animals were seized and placed in the care of a local wildlife park.
Both men will face Hay Local Court at a later date.
