frm:THE GREY RIDER, I for 1 know that here on maui we have many,a brown recluse several types and they are all very poisonous, even in some cases deadly, I myself got bit 13 times in the legsin one nite and 5 days later was in the hospital on antibiodics unable to walk ant the pain mademy guts wrench and lasted for all of 2 weeks as i contracted a serious case of staff infection b4 i even got on the antibodys(by day 3). So somtimes u lucky somtimes no, they dont seem 2b all ovr the island but they do frequent certasin locations ie, little beach, & Paia to name a couple. good luck.

I've seen black widows up in Kula. They like woodpiles. I've never known anyone to be bitten by one, however.

I thought they had all kinds of laws that prevent snakes being brought in. It used to be the only place in HI that had snakes was the zoo. What changed?

Trust me on this one.
Stinging nettle caterpillars. Invasive species from the Philippines. Less than 1/2 inch long, black and white, very slow moving, found on bottom sides of leaves of their favorite plants. All you have to do is have your skin brush against one. In the instant that you touch it, it feels like a burn, then you get some mild swelling in the area and a small rash. Hurts for 3-5 days.

I saw a 7 inch centipede on the street outside the package store in Pahoa 2 weeks ago and my jaw dropped. I never saw a live bug that big in my life!!

i think it's safe to say, you will not run into a snake in hawai'i. you will probably not even see anything else that WILL be here that might be dangerous, aka scorpion, centepede, etc. I have tromped through some of the most remote woods in there and never run across anything dangerous whatsoever. I think as far as dangerous animals, it doesn't get any safer than Hawai'i for the average person.
