Snake Huntin'

Someone on the island of Maui thought he spotted a 3-foot long brown tree snake (Boiga irregularis) about ten days ago, and it didn't take long for rapid response teams to mobilize and begin the search. According to this report from the Honolulu Bulletin, traps have been set around the area, and the team of state workers has been joined by experts from Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. While they're not sure the species was in fact a brown tree snake, they are considering this a credible snake sighting.
