6 Deadliest Sea Snakes
 
08:03
Evolving from Cobras, Sea Snakes have some of the most toxic and potent venom in the world, some can kill a thousand men in just a few drops. Subscribe for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR Here are 6 of the Deadliest Sea Snakes: 6 - The Yellow Bellied Sea Snake The yellow bellied sea snake is one of the most widely distributed snakes in the world and has been spotted as far north as Russia and as far south as New Zealand. Although they tend to avoid cold water, a few have been spotted of the coast of California during drastic weather changes such as el nino. The yellow belly gets its name from its distinct yellow lower half of its body with a black or brown upper body. The snake does not have many predators and the bright yellow colors warn others that it’s highly venomous. They are fairly docile, but may strike a human if picked up or handled roughly. Their venom is highly toxic and causes muscle pain, stiffness, droopy eyelids, drowsiness, vomiting, paralysis and if not treated quickly, death. 5 - The Beaked Sea Snake The Beaked Sea Snake, also known as the hook-nosed sea snake or common sea snake, can be found lurking at the bottom of the murky waters in estuaries and river mouths of the eastern Indian ocean. They are commonly found in the coastal islands of India and have been spotted near the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, and as far north as Vietnam, and as far south as Australia. The snake has a small head with a plump olive green upper body and bluish bands with a white belly. It gets its name from from having a distinct beak-like snout which is slightly curved downward.The beaked sea snake can dive as far as 100 meters below, and can remain underwater for up to hours and typically feeds on bottom feeders such as catfish. Their venom 8 times as potent as a cobra and one bite has enough toxicity to potentially kill 22 humans. Described to be “cantankerous and savage” by experts and is responsible for 90% of sea snake deaths. 4 - The Dubois' Seasnake The Dubois’ Seasnake, sometimes referred to as the Reef Shallows snake, can be found lurking in the coral reefs of Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. It’s color can range from salmon and beige to purple and brown with patterns of dark or cream colored bands and is typically just over 1 meter long. The snake can remain underwater for for up to two hours and is It’s diet consists of mostly small reef fish such as blennies, parrotfish, surgeonfish as well as moray eels. The Duboi’s Sea Snake is mildly tempered and will only strike a diver if threatened or mishandled. 3 - The Horned Sea Snake The Horned Sea Snake, also referred to as the Spiny-Headed Sea snake, is widely spread throughout the coast of Australia and Southeast Asia, but can also be found near in the waters of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. While most sea snakes prey on a variety of small fish, an adult Horned Sea Snake feeds mainly on gobbies, while the young feed on shrimp. The horned Sea snake is also known to be one of the most venomous sea snakes in the world, although there have been no recorded bites on humans. 2 - Banded Sea Krait The Banded Sea Krait can be found in the tropical Western Pacific Seas and the Indian Ocean. The snake gets its name from having distinct black uniform stripes that cover its blueish grey body. It averages 35 inches in length, with a large paddle shaped tail adapted for water.The Banded Sea Krait’s venom is among some of the most toxic on earth and is 10 times more potent than that of a rattlesnake. The snake is well adapted for hunting in shallow waters and coral reefs, which it uses to its advantage in catching prey, which mostly consists of eel and small fish. Although it usually hunts alone, Banded Sea Krait’s have also been known to cooperate together in large numbers as a hunting party. But unlike most other sea snakes, the Banded Sea Krait spends much of its time on land. It will often leave the sea to seek freshwater, digest food, rest, lay eggs, and shed its skin - all on land.Because the snake frequents land so much, human encounters are far more common than other sea snake. Fortunately, the snake is most always docile, even when provoked, and will very rarely bite a human. 1 - Belcher’s Sea Snake The Belcher’s Sea Snake, sometimes referred to as the Faint- Banded Sea Snake, is the most venomous snake in the world. It is said that the snake’s venom is over 100 times that of a cobra, and just a few milligrams is capable of killing over 1,000 humans. It can be found off the coasts of Northern Australia and Southeast Asia, and is commonly present in the Philippines, New Guinea, and the Gulf of Thailand. Fortunately for humans, the Belcher’s Sea Snake is quite docile and has even been said to actually be quite friendly. They will almost never bite humans unless heavily provoked, and even when they do, it is estimated that about 3/4ths of all bites on humans are dry bites.

These highly venomous snakes are called sea kraits, and there’s a few differences between them and sea snakes. Sea kraits lay eggs, and have to come up on land to lay them while sea snakes give live birth out at sea. Like sea snakes, sea kraits also have evolved a paddle tail, but have belly scales like snakes that live on land. So come and meet the sea krait, New Caledonia’s only native snake!

Venomous Sea Snake aka Banded Sea Krait
 
03:06
***LIKE, SHARE, SUBSCRIBE!*** Venomous Sea Snake aka Banded Sea Krait Laticauda colubrina, commonly known as the banded sea krait, colubrine sea krait, or yellow-lipped sea krait, is a species of venomous sea snake found in tropical Indo-Pacific oceanic waters. It has distinctive black stripes and a yellow snout. The banded sea krait is an amphibious species of snake that spends most of its life at sea but comes to land to reproduce. In adaptation to this curious semi-aquatic lifestyle, the banded sea krait has evolved unusual morphology. It has retained the ventral scales and cylindrical body shape that is typical of terrestrial snakes, as this helps with climbing on land and in low trees, but its tail is paddle-shaped, which allows rapid movement in water. It also has large lungs so that it can spend long periods under water, as well as valved nostrils that keep out saltwater while diving, and glands under the tongue that expel excess salt. The banded sea krait displays marked sexual dimorphism, the female being heavier and around a third longer than the male. The head and tail look rather similar, which perhaps serves to confuse predators by drawing their attack to the tail, which is less likely to result in fatal injuries. The small head is slightly distinct from the body, which is bluish-grey with smooth, regularly-spaced scales. Equal-sized black bands circle the entire length of the body and contrast sharply with the yellow or cream underparts. The snout, upper lips and a bar above the eyes are yellow, but the remainder of the head is black.

Banded Sea Krait
 
01:28
The Banded Sea Krait or Laticauda colubrina is a seafaring snake that is found in the waters of the Indo-Pacific. They have a banded black and white skin pattern with smooth scales and a small aerodynamic head. They propel themselves through the water with paddle shaped tails. These snakes venom is 10X worse than a Black Mambas which are extremely venomous. The reason they developed this strong venom is because of their prey; fish. Now fish can be fast one could travel over quite a distance before the venom took effect. So the snakes venom is designed to kill the fish quickly so it doesn't get away. They generally leave divers alone and only come to shore to mate so it is a slim chance that you would ever be bitten.

Milking the world's most venomous snake + mixing venom with blood! (The Living Room)

Milking the world's most venomous snake (the Inland Taipan), and mixing the venom with blood to see the powerful coagulation effect! Australia's Inland Taipan - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inland_taipan from The Living Room 30/10/2015 (Halloween special) In regards to which snake in the world is the "deadliest" there really isn't such a thing because there are so many variable parameters such as aggression, toxicity, population/distribution, venom quantity, number of bite victims, percentage of fatalities, and so on, and the Inland Taipan is actually a very rare snake who would rather shy away than attack, so you couldn't really call it the deadliest, especially as so few people even get bitten. However, it is considered the most venomous snake in the world based on the median lethal dose value in mice; its venom, drop for drop, is by far the most toxic of any snake – much more so than even sea snakes. One single bite delivers enough venom to kill 250,000 mice, or 100 men.

Sea Snakes and Turtles - Reef Life of the Andaman - Part 20

Sea Snakes and Sea Turtles. Part 20 of my DVD, "Reef Life of the Andaman", available at http://www.bubblevision.com/marine-life-DVD.htm or view the whole 2-hour video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ncUVddkK3Q In this video we look at the 3 most common marine reptiles in the Andaman Sea. First we meet the banded sea krait, Laticauda colubrina, a type of sea snake, hunting for prey at Shark Cave in the Mergui Archipelago in Burma (Myanmar), and in and around the Similan Islands in the Andaman Sea of Thailand. The banded sea krait's venom is extremely poisonous but they usually ignore scuba divers and their mouths are very small. There are two common types of sea turtle to be found in the Andaman Sea. First we encounter the Pacific hawsbill turtle, Eretmochelys imbricata bissa, which can be found on many dive sites in Thailand and Burma. Then in the Similan Islands we find the green turtle, Chelonia mydas. Turtles have a wide-ranging diet that includes cnidarians such as jellyfish and coral polyps. Sadly many sea turtles die by choking on or being poisoned by man-made debris such as plastic bags which they mistake as food. At Donald Duck Bay in the Similan Islands, we witness snorkellers hand-feeding one of the green turtles which hang around moored boats in search of food. As reptiles, both sea snakes and sea turtles must surface to breathe regularly before returning to the sea bed to hunt or rest.

Banded Sea Krait
 
01:21
More commonly referred to as a sea snake, and locally as "walo-walo", the Banded Sea Krait can be found in the waters across the tropical Indo-Pacific region. It is highly venomous, but since its mouth is super tiny, it poses no real danger to divers or beach-goers. These snakes go up to breathe from time to time, and need to drink fresh water as well, so that they are sometimes spotted on land. They're extremely shy. At the end of this video, I touched its tail, which had come very close to my face already anyway, and it scampered away -- I imagine its tail would've been between its legs if it had any! One thing I find curious about this sea snake. Each time I see it underwater, it looks as if it's looking for something that it lost and can't seem to find at all...

Spearfishing Aggressive Sea Snake Attacks
 
00:31
This is a short video of a Pacific Banded Krait (Sea Snake) attacking me in Niue, Pacific Sea Kraits are highly venomous and have roughly x20 more lethal venom that the most venomous land snakes being bitten by one is sure death! According to the locals their mouths are too small to actually bite a human and the only place they could get their mouths around are the webbings in your fingers and toes (I don’t know how true this is) Anyway you can see from the video that I’m drifting towards the Sea Snake filming it coming up for air when all of a sudden it lunges at me, i can only assume that my mask flashed and this aggravated the snake causing it to launch an attack on my mask, I am drifting with the current filming the snake coming up for air. I have filmed hundreds of sea snakes from my gun mount and it has never caused an issue so I have put it down to a combination of the mask flash and drifting with the gun towards the snake. In the Slow Mo you can see him bounce back off the mask. But i really shat myself when it slide around my neck and then disappeared Sea Snakes are usually very docile and you can have them swim between your legs and around your arms, They are beautiful to watch and very curious they will come upto you do not be afraid. Just act normal they will investigate and then leave. They really are magnificent to watch just take caution this is a very rare incident and they usually only act defensively and unfortunately I’ve obviously made it feel threatened Shot on my GoPro 4 Location : Niue

Banded sea kraits are known for being venomous, but they're rarely ever aggressive underwater. Really interesting to watch this animal hunting on the reef.
