  Crocodile skins seized by coast guards are on show in Fangchenggang City, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Feb. 7, 2017. Guards seized 1,609 pieces of crocodile skin, each at 1.4 meters long, and 193 bags of suspected crocodile meat weighing 506.5 kilograms. A suspect caught said he was hired by a buyer in the city to receive the goods from a port in Vietnam. It’s illegal to smuggle crocodile or crocodile products. Crocodile skin is the upmarket of consumer goods because of its small quantities and luxurious quality. The smuggling of alligator skins is emerging as the high-end leather market flourishes.
