Workers found a two-foot-long brown gopher snake while unloading a shipping container at a Keaau store on the Big Island this week. State Department of Agriculture officials say the snake died, after the workers hit it to prevent it from escaping. Gopher snakes are nonvenomous and are commonly found in North America. They can grow to seven fee long. They eat small rodents, young rabbits, lizards, birds and eggs.  The snake kill their prey by constriction and suffocation.
