Two illegal marsupials — an opossum and a sugar glider possum — and a snake were found on Oahu on Monday.

 At Ward Center, a young opossum was found in a shipping container at a retail store about 7:30 a.m. Workers unloading the container spotted the animal, immediately closed the container and notified the police, state agriculture officials said. 

Also Monday, a 3.5- to 4-inch sugar glider was turned over to the Hawaiian Humane Society through its amnesty program. The owner, who voluntarily surrendered the animal at the Moiliili shelter, will not be penalized. It is the second sugar glider to be handed over in two weeks. 

Tonight, police from the Kapolei substation received a call from an Ewa Beach resident who reported finding what appeared to be a 9-inch snake.
