In another incident, a 20-year-old man travelling to Hawaii from Florida experienced a terrifying moment when a small snake slithered out of his backpack after arriving his destination. The incident took place when the man reached a Maui vacation rental in Pukalani and put down his backpack on the floor. However, the snake was captured immediately, the owner of the rental informed the visitor that snakes are illegal in Hawaii.

"It is fortunate that the owner of the rental was aware of the seriousness of the snake being transported to Hawaii and took appropriate action and reported it," the Chairperson of the Hawaii Board of Agriculture, Phyllis Shimabukuro-Geiser said as per the press release. According to HDOA inspectors, the snake secretly crept into the man's backpack and he certainly wasn't transporting it to Hawaii. They learned it after interrogating him.
