Are there any snakes in Hawaii?

There are no snakes in Hawaii except the Hawaiian snake which is more wormlike and blind and very rare.

The only "snakes" I ever remember seeing were the ones the "cops" would like to be arresting. Other than that - the only other UGLY creature were the cockroaches - YUCK!

" We should sneak snakes into the island to eat all of the rats living in our house!"

one day i was walking down the street i stumbbeled upon this small little snake like creature. i was always told there was no snakes. so i picked it up (it took awhile for mr to grasp it for it was so small) it was biting me nothing bad. i started to do a little investigating. and i found out that it was a snake called the hawaiin snake. a small snake the big as they get is max 6 in and they are very rare the chances youll ever run into one in the wild is slim to none. so the answer to your question is yes

Snakes in Hawaii would be horrible. Guam was once snake free until the Brown Tree Snake invaded the island. The Tree Snakes did not target the undesirable "critters" but instead destroyed the native bird population forever changing the island. This change also initiates other changes thus leading to ecological ruin. To the gentleman whose house is overrun by rats, I'd suggest a thorough house cleaning.

Sure are. Found a beautiful light grey-blue snake on a lava flow. Eyes, scales, forked tongue, wriggled like a snake not a worm. About 6 inches long, 1/4 inch diameter.
