Best Answer

Millions of years ago, there were snakes in what is now New Zealand. A combination of the ice-age and New Zealand's disconnection from the 'mainland', has resulted in the extinction and non-return of all land snakes. Notice, I say land snakes, because, in fact, New Zealand does get the occasional but rare visit from sea snakes.
