    I saw a special on tv a few years ago about a venemous brown snake that was spreading very rapidly in your part of the country, came from Samoa I think. Pat

    Brown snakes have not taken root in Hawaii. The snakes come from Guam, where they have decimated the forests. As a result, airplanes from Guam are closely inspected. FWIW, it is a felony to bring a snake into the state.

    I couldn't resist diving into this. Speaking as a herpetologist, when I'm in the field, particularly in rattlesnake country (where I spend a lot of time), I always wear the foot gear that gives me the maximum protection from serious danger: tennis sneakers with good traction. A broken leg out in the back of beyond is something to worry about!

    Cheers, Doug

    Check the notion that snakes are most likely out and about during the day and that nightime isn't a problem: they begin to hunt at dawn and dusk.

    Here's a reasonably lucid primer on co-existing with the little fellas.

    and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision"
