Someone turned a corn snake in to the Hawaiian Humane Society Sunday night under the state’s illegal animal amnesty program.

The snake was turned over to state agriculture officials.

The humane society posted a photo of the snake on their Facebook page.

The state’s amnesty program provides immunity from prosecution for possessing an illegal reptile. State law categorizes possessing and/or transporting illegal animals as a Class C felony, punishable with a $200,000 fine and up to three years in prison.

In the wild, corn snakes usually live around 6–8 years, but in captivity can live up to 23 years old and are found throughout the southeastern and central United States. They are not poisonous.
