    hree men have been arrested while allegedly trying to smuggle 600 rare frogs into Belgium. The men had packed the poison arrow frogs into rolls of film, reports Gazet Van Antwerpen.

    Customs officers at Zaventem airport arrested the man after becoming suspicious of the amount of film they seemed to be carrying.

    The rolls all had a piece of film hanging out, as if they were unused, but when officers checked they found tiny frogs inside.

    The frogs, which came from South America, have been valued at about £70,000 to collectors who pay £70 to £175 for a single arrow poison frog.
