Stuttgart Airport customs items

When we went to the Intergastra this year at the Stuttgart Fair, we had the opportunity to have a look at a couple of confiscated items put in an exhibition.
As it seems, the room usually is only open for special guided tours but in this case, the officer was so nice to let us have a look and take some photo shoots of these articles.
These are alligator faces which had been found altogether during one of the monitorings.

 Boots and purses made from reptiles and an especially revolting handbag made from a goanna.

 Sea shells and corals which are protected.
 Brand spoofing
 Feathers from protected exotic birds
Carpet made of guanako skin

As we were told by the customs officer, all of these items had been collected from travellers passing Stuttgart Airport during the years.
