It was a surprising find at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents discover two giant African snails in a traveler's luggage.

Two members of the CBP's Beagle Brigade alerted agents to something inside luggage arriving on a flight from Nigeria.

Inside, agents said they found the snails plus prohibited fruits and vegetables.

The traveler wasn't fined but did receive a warning.

The fruit was destroyed.

The snails were turned over to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
