HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A slinky stowaway was discovered at Honolulu Harbor on Monday, the second snake found in Hawaii in the past few days.
The call for the foot-long reptile came in when workers were loading cars from a ship. The ship arrived Friday.
Officials have yet to identify the type of snake. It was taken to the state Department of Agriculture office at the airport.
Another snake, a 5-foot-long ball python, was captured in Hilo last weekend by county workers.
Snakes do not have natural predators on the islands, but do pose a threat to the environment.
Anyone who discovers illegal animals should call the PEST hotline at (808) 643-7378.
