Are There Snakes in Hawaii? Turns Out Yes But Special



Are there snakes in Hawaii? Technically, there are no native snakes… on land. But there are a local species in Hawaiian waters.

Bright yellow and black, Hawaii’s Yellow-Bellied Sea Snake measures about 30 inches long and swims in the warm coastal waters. It’s strictly non-terrestrial.

SUMMARY:
– Bites from the Yellow-Bellied Sea Snake are so rare that the Waikiki Aquarium couldn’t find even one report of anybody in Hawaii being bitten by one.
– Anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000 miles of ocean separate Hawaii’s islands from the nearest landmass. That’s too far for most animals to travel.
– Hawaiians are incredibly vigilant about keeping out any snakes who try to visit. Local authorities work hard to capture the ones that’ve somehow made their way into the state.
– Take Guam as an example – invasive snakes devasted the bird population, eating up as many as 10 of the 12 known avian species there.
– But sometimes the person who brought the snake isn’t a criminal – it can happen by accident.
– There is an amnesty program that lets you turn in any snakes you happen to possess and with no penalty!
– In 2018, the state’s Department of Agriculture invited 4 brown tree snakes to come and live in Hawaii.
– These snakes are working hand in hand or … well … together with the DoA in a big game of “Hide and Seek.” By hiding and waiting, they help train dogs to sniff them out.
– Also, there’s one snake that’s so common, your chances of seeing him are pretty high. These guys are so tiny that most people mistake them for worms!
– They’re almost blind, but they can recognize light. Also, they’re not venomous, so no danger here!

  1. I wouldn't wanna live in Hawaii because I've gotta have Jewel. He wouldn't eat the native bird population because I keep him in a cage and feed him mice. I feed the other one lizards.

  2. I live in Hawaii, and I used to play with the blind snakes as a child. I would flip a rock in my mom's garden and there would be a few. Have been seeing less that days though
