1. Small Snake Population
There are very few snakes on the island of Jamaica.
The mongoose was imported to Jamaica to rid the cane fields of rats in 1872.
As an added benefit, the mongoose has killed off almost the entire population of snakes.
So running across a snake is a rare occurrence in Jamaica.
