Snakes Seized

Malaysian wildlife officers seized 115 cobras from a trader. (News source.)

[I can't tell what exactly the charges would be; he apparently only declared 1400 snakes, but had over 1500. So are the 115 cobras just what he underdeclared, or specifically illegal in and of themselves? There were some animal cruelty charges, also, due to caging conditions. I'm guessing the snakes were headed to the Chinese food markets.]
