This is what I found. Although Hawaii does not have snakes, there are slithery, venomous creatures here like the Giant Centipede (Scolopendra subspinipes). Giant Centipedes were accidentally introduced to Hawaii by humans, perhaps by the Polynesians or by the first explorers, and they have since become one of the most feared and hated pests here because of their venomous and painful bites, their annoying tendency to enter houses, and their active climbing and exploring, which can lead them to do things like crawl into your bed at night.
I guess I may have left Hawaii a little bit better of a place. Tim
