Glass Eyes, Diamonds And Other Strange Things Travelers Leave Behind
Most passengers don't even wait for the seat belt light to go off before jumping up from their seats and getting ready to disembark the plane, so it's no surprise that in the hurry belongings often get left behind.
You're probably imagining that most of the forgotten items involve things commonly stowed in the seat back compartment, such as passports, books and cell phones -- and you wouldn't be wrong. But it seems many of our fellow travelers are also flying with some pretty strange cargo, at least according to a study by booking site Skyscanner, which rounded up the most bizarre things left behind by passengers on planes.
Some of the oddities forgotten on flights include underwear, handcuffs and bags of diamonds -- all the kinds of things that would certainly have you questioning who you're sitting next to. Animals also made the list, with parrots, frogs, falcons and even eggs forgotten by their owners. Other items we're not sure how the owners walked off without include prosthetic legs and glass eyes.
Hotels have also seen their fair share of wacky objects forgotten in rooms, including a showjumping horse, a life size cardboard cutout of a comedian and a wok (apparently the guest had filled the toilet with charcoal in the hopes of turning it into a barbeque).
