Video: Hawaiian Blind Snake Found the Other Day

I just noticed this video uploaded to youtube today.

I’ve heard about the Hawaiian Blind Snake (Ramphotyphlops braminus), but I’ve never seen one.

  1. It’s a misnomer to call these “Hawaiian” snakes. Yes, they’re in Hawaii, but they were introduced. (They are the only known snake in Hawaii with reproductive populations in the wild.)

  2. Hey Damon I was also under the impression that Hawai’i had no snakes. This little guy is not too scary though. Thanks for the share.

  3. I was told we didn’t have any snakes in Hawai’i!!!

  4. Hey Damon, We see them not infrequently in Waikoloa. They seem to like place that are hot, dry, dark and undisturbed. I think the look like living solder.
