In this exciting adventure, Jonathan travels to Manuk, a tiny, uninhabited volcanic island several hundred miles from the nearest populated island in Indonesia, on a mission to discover why the waters of this remote place are teeming with thousands of venomous sea snakes!

Located in the middle of the so-called coral triangle, the diversity of species and colors of Indonesian reefs absolutely amazes me every time I get the chance to dive here. This time however, it’s not the reefs I have come to film, but a remote and uninhabited island whose waters are reputed to teem with thousands of sea snakes! The island, known as Manuk, is an active volcano a hundred kilometers from the nearest inhabited island, smack dab in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago. Getting there is no easy task. I have chartered the Seahorse, a traditional Indonesian Pinisi built for divers, for a special itinerary to reach Manuk Island. Divemaster Jandri meets me at the marina in Sorong. It took me 2 full days of flying just to get to Sorong from the United States! He takes me out to the Seahorse, my home away from home for the next two weeks. This expedition will take 14 divers 1200 miles across the Banda Sea, from Sorong to Alor, stopping to dive along the way at many islands, the most important of which of course is Manuk. The island is aptly named: Manuk means “bird” in several Indonesian dialects. And birds it has! Manuk is completely uninhabited and there are a few reasons why. First of all, it’s kind of steep. But more importantly, it’s an active volcano! There are steam and sulfur vents all over the island. It swims casually by flapping its flattened, paddle-like section of tail. Sea snakes are among the most venomous animals on Earth. They use this venom to hunt, and fortunately, attacks on people are extremely rare. Soon I start to see other sea snakes, and I realize that more and more have been appearing. Were they here before and I didn’t see them, or did they come out from someplace? Clearly, some were sleeping. This one is taking a nap in plain view on the reef. I guess they don’t really have to worry about predators. I watch this one sleep for a little while, and start to wonder if it’s even alive. Pretty soon I notice that as the snakes are waking up, they are coming over to check me out. Like land snakes, this is how a sea snake “smells” but at the same time, the tongue flicking helps get rid of excess salt from glands in its mouth. Because sea snakes are reptiles just like land snakes, they have lungs and need to breathe air just like people. So a sea snake must head to the surface every once in a while for a breath. Sea snakes have a huge lung that takes up nearly the entire length of their bodies so they can hold a big breath that will last a while. Each time a sea snake surfaces, it usually spends a minute or two resting and breathing, before gulping in that last big breath and diving back down to the reef. A breath can last 1-2 hours depending on the species, but most sea snakes breathe more often than that unless they are sleeping. They can also absorb a little bit of oxygen from the water directly through their skin, which helps them extend their dives. The next morning I’m up at sunrise, and heading out to the reef for an early morning dive. Early morning is when the sea snakes hunt, and I’m hoping to witness the reef alive with sea snakes on the prowl! Underwater, the light levels are still low, and I’m heading out to a deep seamount where I saw a lot of sea snakes yesterday. This should be a good place to find some sea snakes hunting. When a sea snake hunts, it takes advantage of having a small head and a thin body to go from hole to hole in the reef, poking its head inside. It hopes to corner a fish or invertebrate that’s hiding in the hole. Once the hunting starts, more sea snakes start coming in to the reef to join the hunt. On this seamount more than a hundred feet from the surface, dozens of sea snakes are gathering to prowl the reef for food. Sometimes, they appear to work together to make sure nothing escapes.

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.

Sea Snakes | JONATHAN BIRD'S BLUE WORLD
 
07:28
Many people don't realize that there are snakes that live in the ocean. And believe it or not, they're actually considerably more venomous than land snakes! Jonathan travels to Australia and the Philippines to find these marine reptiles, and learns why they are almost completely harmless to divers. This is an HD upload of a segment previously released in season 3. ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** The sea snake is an animal surrounded in mystery—known for its incredibly powerful venom, but not much else. Just how dangerous are these marine reptiles? I have traveled to Queensland, Australia on a quest to learn about sea snakes. Here on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, sea snakes are fairly common. Lets go see if we can find one. I hit the water, grab my camera and head towards the sea floor. Today I’m diving on a little seamount called a coral Bommie. It’s a mini-mountain of coral sticking up from the bottom, but not quite reaching the surface. Near the top of the Bommie, thousands of small fish feed on plankton passing by in the current, but they stay close to the reef, because they are being watched by a big school of jacks who are on the prowl for food themselves. The bommie is covered in healthy coral that provides lots of nooks and crannies for the fish to hide if they need cover. On the other side of the bommie, a large school of snappers are also looking for something to eat, and keeping a safe distance from the jacks. As I swim along at the base of the bommie, I’m keeping my eyes open for a snake-like animal. The coral looks healthy and a Spinecheek anemonefish gives me a quick glance from the safety of her host anemone. But I keep scanning the bottom and at last I have found my quarry: an olive sea snake, the most common species around the Great Barrier Reef. It’s swimming along the bottom doing the same thing everything else is doing—looking for food. The sea snake is closely related to a land snake, except it has adapted for life underwater. When a sea snake flicks its tongue, it’s getting rid of excess salt secreted by special glands in its mouth. Sea snakes live exclusively in the ocean, but since they’re reptiles, their kidneys can’t deal with too much excess salt in their blood. A sea snake gets around with a flattened section of tail that looks like an oar and serves as a fin. It looks just like an eel when it swims, undulating its body and getting propulsion from that flattened tail. Although sea snakes prefer to eat fish, eels and shrimp, these snappers aren’t at all afraid of the sea snake, because they are way too big for the sea snake to bite. This snake is heading for the surface to grab a breath of air. A sea snake, just like a land snake, has lungs and must breathe air to survive. It can hold its breath up to 3 hours during a dive. Recent research has shown that some sea snakes also can absorb a little bit of oxygen directly from the water through their skin, which is probably why a breath can last so long. After spending a minute at the surface breathing, the sea snake comes back down to the bottom. It’s poking around, looking for holes where it might corner a fish or shrimp. It sticks its head into the holes, hoping to get lucky. The sea snake is most closely related to the Cobra on land, and its venom is quite similar to cobra venom, but considerably more potent. If it manages to grab a fish, the venom will kill it in seconds. Sea snakes quite often take a rest on the bottom, sleeping as they hold their breath. I use the opportunity to sneak up on one. In spite of their fearsome venom, sea snakes are very timid and not particularly aggressive. Although this one is obviously not thrilled about being picked up, it doesn’t try to bite me. And when I let go, it just swims away. I find another one and can’t resist the opportunity to show the flattened tail section. Swim, be free! Although the sea snake is one of the most venomous animals in the world, you’re not very likely to be bitten by one. There are 62 known species of sea snakes and they live all around the tropical Indo-Pacific. I found this banded sea snake in the Philippines. They like nice warm tropical water because they are cold-blooded, like all reptiles. If the water gets too cold, they get lethargic. So, no matter what you might think of snakes, sea snakes are timid and shy animals that represent almost no threat at all to people, even though they produce some of the most powerful venom in the world.

11 Differences Between Eels & Sea Snakes
 
13:51
11 differences between eels & sea snakes! From electric eels to venomous sea snakes (the most toxic sea snakes in the world), we'll highlight everything you need to know about these creatures. Type of animal Eels are a specific type of elongated fish and can be found in marine and freshwater environments. Sea snakes are reptiles and they are only found in marine environments. They are much flatter, in the vertical sense, than a snake. In addition, these fish’s heads tend to be longer and sharper. Eels also have fins, which sea snakes never have. Habitat Sea snakes are found throughout the coastal waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans. They do not occur in the Red Sea, Atlantic Ocean, or Caribbean Sea. Most sea snakes live in shallow water less than 30 meters (100 feet) deep because they need to surface to breathe yet must seek their prey near the sea floor. However, the yellow-bellied sea snake may be found in the open ocean. Behavior Eels is an ambush predator, spending a considerable amount of time hidden in caves, rock crevices, or coral reefs. When a prey animal passes by, it pounces on it. Depending on the prey type, the eel might wrap itself around it, and crush the victim until it is small enough to be swallowed, or it might tear pieces from the body and eat the prey bite-by-bite. Sea snakes are generally reluctant to bite, and are usually considered to be mild-tempered, although variation is seen among species and individuals. Conservation status The European eel is a critically endangered species. Since the 1970s, the numbers of eels reaching Europe is thought to have declined by around 98%. Nostrils Nostrils of sea snakes are equipped with moveable valves that prevent water to enter the nose when they are under the water. The tubular nostrils spotted on eels are believed to help them detect prey. Size and diet Depending on the species, eels can grow to be anywhere between 4 inches to 11 1/2 feet long. However, most sea snakes grow to sizes between 3.9 to 4.9 feet long. Largest sea snake can reach 9.8 feet in length. Eels are carnivorous, meaning they are meat eaters. They eat a variety of animals such as worms, snails, frogs, shrimp, mussels, lizards and other small fish. Gills Eels have gills, as most other fish do, and filter air from the water in order to breathe. This means that they never have to go to the surface. Snakes, on the other hand, do not have gills, but lungs. Sea snakes can dive to the depth of 300 feet. On average, they dive for 30 minutes. Sea snakes can survive for more than 10 years in the wild. Mating season Mating season of sea snakes depends on the species. Only several species will lay eggs on the solid ground. Most species give birth to live snakes. Females give birth once in two year. he gestation period varies wildly, anywhere between 4 and 11 months, and is dependent on a number of factors, including abundance of food, water temperature and the age and health of the female. Once born, the young are on their own; the adults have no parental instincts at all. The number of babies ranges from couple to more than 25. Senses Sea snakes flick their tongues to gain chemical and thermal information about their environment. Sea snake tongues are shorter than those of regular snakes because it's easier to "taste" molecules in water than in air. There is no much information about sea snake vision, but it appears to play a limited role in catching prey and selecting mates. Scales The eel’s scales are much smaller and give the animal a smoother appearance, though. Sea snakes even have a special scale that let them feel movements in the water. They developed a scaly organ on their heads which lets them "see" underwater. The sensors, known as scale sensilla, are sensitive organs that protrude from scales on a snake's head. These head-organs facilitate awareness of water movements, but the extent of their awareness isn't well understood. Venom/Poisonous Sea snakes are almost always venomous, whether it is a mild venom or, in many cases, one of the most toxic. The most poisonous one is the Beaked Sea Snake. Just 3 drops of venom can kill about 8 people! Fortunately, these snakes have short fangs and they are unable to bite through diver’s suits very easily. Other than venom, some sea snakes produce enzyme that induces digestion of the prey from the moment of bite. Symptoms of sea snake poisoning include headache, stiffness, and muscle pain throughout the body. Thirst, sweating, vomiting, and a thick-feeling tongue may result. Muscle degradation and paralysis ensue. Death occurs if the muscles involved in swallowing and respiration are affected. Because bites are so rare, antivenin is next to impossible to obtain. Eels, on the other hand, are not venomous, but can deliver a nasty bite if you offer your hand. Further reinforcing the “don’t touch” creed divers should all know well!

Sea Snake Facts: 10 Facts about Sea Snakes
 
02:55
Here are 10 facts about sea snakes to help gain an understanding of this fascinating and amazing creature All images used courtesy of wikipedia Videos used under creative commons license Snake Pit, Grande Barrière de Corail, Australie by Antoni Belmas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKV2-IBZz60 NEW Diving with sea snake in Thailand Aquagrils Underwater by AQUA GRİLS Videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjmlzPw_YA8 Synopsis Sea snakes are some of the most venomous sea creatures in the oceans. They use their powerful venom to defend themselves against attacks although they are not aggressive by nature. If one is bitten by a sea snake, the symptoms include generalized aching, stiffness, and tenderness of muscles all over the body. This can later lead to paralysis and some bites may result in death if they are not treated quickly. There are currently 62 species of sea snake and they can measure between 3.9 to 4.9 feet long. They largest sea snake can reach 9.8 feet in length. Their color and patterns on their bodies depend on the species and can be an assortment of colours from black, red, white, grey or blue. Although there are some species which are uniformly coloured. They are extremely adept swimmers and swim very quickly however when traversing dry land they are very clumsy movers. Sea snakes have moveable valves that stop water from getting into their noses and they have the ability to get rid of salt from their bodies which is excessive. Many sea snakes just prefer to swim in the shallow water and they are able to dive for up to an hour without coming up to the surface for breath. On average they will be underwater for up to 30 mins before returning to the surface. They are able to breathe whilst using their lungs and through their skin. Sea snakes are carnivores whose diet mainly consists of varying types of eggs, fish, mollusks and crustaceans. Sea snakes are able to live up to 10 years in the wild and they will mate at different times of the year. They will lay their eggs on the ground to hatch after a gestation period of usually around 9 months. They are able to give birth to up to 25 young.

Most DANGEROUS Sea Snakes
 
08:47
From savage strikes on humans … to the most venomous serpent in the waters ... Here are 11 of the most dangerous sea snakes Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife #6 Yellow-Lipped Sea Krait Found in tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific, this beast is known by its yellow snout and distinctive black stripes. This species is actually semiaquatic, dividing their time equally between the ocean and the land where they are often encountered by humans. Since the animals are not aggressive, they usually shy away from humans. And that’s a good thing considering the snake’s venom is said to be 10 times more powerful than a rattlesnake’s. Effects can include paralysis, cardiac failure, and death. Most bites have occurred when the snakes are caught in fishing nets and fishermen try to untangle them. DId you know that this species has a clever defense mechanism? Since their tail resembles their head it can discourage predators from plotting an ambush. #5 Golden Sea Snake Thanks to its coloration, this one is also known as the Olive sea snake and can reach lengths tht exceed six feet (2 m). This species has been noted for the unusual photoreceptors located in the skin of its tail. Since the sensory structures can detect variations in light, you might say that this snake can see with its tail. Experts say the creature might use the ability to make sure it’s completely hidden within coral holes for the day. They usually stay there when they’re not surfacing to breathe or are hunting. Golden sea snakes can aggressively hunt prey, but will typically leave divers and larger animals alone. If they’re sufficiently provoked, the animals will respond accordingly. Their venom is distinguished by enzymes that break down their prey from the inside, and can damage nerves and muscles. #4 Yellow-bellied Sea Snake As you’d guess from its name, the animal does indeed have a yellow underbelly. That, along with its brown back sets it apart from other species of sea snakes. Did you know that they’re one of the most widely distributed snakes, showing up in tropical waters around the world? Like others of their kind, this species carries a highly potent venom that contains a variety of neurotoxins that can damage skeletal muscles and kidneys, and causes paralysis. Unlike other sea snakes, this species can draw about one-third of their oxygen straight through their skin while they dive or swim near the water’s surface. Even though they inhabit oceans, sea snakes can only drink freshwater. These Yellow-bellied beasts can obtain that from precipitation that forms on the surface of seawater. And if there’s no freshwater available they can survive severe dehydration for seven months during seasonal droughts. #3 Belcher’s Sea Snake These serpents are moderately sized, with slender bodies that can measure a little over 3 feet long (1 m). Among other places, they’re found in the waters of the Solomon Islands and Thailand. The reptiles tend to be mild-mannered, and it would take a lot of mistreatment to make them bite. As for their venom, not much is known about its overall toxicity because these snakes rarely inject very much venom. Experts say they’re not regarded as overly dangerous. So why include them on this list? It’s because Belcher’s Sea Snake has gained a fearsome reputation for being the world’s most venomous snake. The myth surrounding Belcher’s sea snake is traced to an error that appeared in a book from the Smithsonian called “Snakes in Question” which was published in 1996. It turns out that this species was confused with another sea snake that is far more venomous. And that one is coming up later. #2 Dubois Sea Snake These animals have a range that extends from New Guinea to the western coast of Australia, and inhabit depths of 242 feet (80 meters). Going about 5 feet long (148 cm), the snake can feed on prey that’s nearly as large as itself. It’s interesting to note that they’re not the biggest sea snakes, and they have relatively small fangs that measure about 1.8 mm long. Even so, experts say that this critter ranks as the world’s most venomous sea snake. They also say it’s the world’s third most venomous snake overall, ranking right behind the eastern brown snake and the Inland Taipan which places at number one. 1...

VENOMOUS SEA SNAKE Cooked Two Ways 海蛇 / 海の蛇 / 바다뱀 - Vietnam Seafood Street Food
 
17:25
This is one of the most extraordinary street food experience I have had in Vietnam, that is, sea snake. A fresh sea snake was taken out of the fish tank and ready for cooking. A skilled man cleaned and processed the sea snake first. After that, 3-4 kitchen staffs made the amazing fried roll from the sea snake. This is extraordinary Vietnam street food I would say. This seafood street food of sea snake in Vietnam is so tasty. You can feel the sweet of snake meat and bones together in the roll. They mixed internal parts of the snake into alcohol to make a drink too. Having this snake street food with that drink is a hell of experience. I would come back this place for more wonderful street food in Vietnam. ➤ Subscribe for new episode of Vietnamese street food every week. ➤ Follow my personal FB: https://www.facebook.com/RawStreetCapture101

The BIGGEST SNAKE Ever !  TITANOBOA
 
08:03
We know the anacondas, boas, pythons, but have you heard about the Titanoboa? It is the queen of snakes and is also the largest ever known. Correction: The titanoboa weighed 1.13 tons. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION: Its scientific name is Titanoboa Cerrejonensis, because it was discovered in the Cerrejón coal mines, located in the State of La Guajira, in Colombia. In this place, the geologist Henry Garcia found a strange fossil in 1994. He labeled it a "petrified branch" and stored it in a counter in the mine's facilities. The discovery was not free of challenges. To know what the titanoboa was feeding on and what its true size was, the head was needed. Until then, mining activity had helped the discovery of new species. While more layers of land miners extracted, more species were found and they seemed to be increasingly older. The problem was that this time the miners had announced that they were going to start digging in lower strata and that all the land from the time of the titanoboa would be removed, losing any trace of it. The paleontologists had to hurry. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- About Us: Trend Max is an education and entertainment channel dedicated to creating interesting Tops and Lists.

sea snake vs moray eel
 
01:38
This Video was taken on a diving trip to Wakatobi, Indonesia. One of my fellow diver, Tommy saw a sea snake wandering around coral reef looking for a prey when suddenly, BAM!! The snake strikes in to a hole and pulled out a yellow spotted moray eel between her jaws. The sea snake is known as one of the most poisonous snake of all but the moray eel didn't give up easily. They struggled. I was stunned and didn't realize that my position was not really a safe distance when suddenly the eel manage to escape and hide behind the coral while the upset snake tried to find something else to bite. It tried to bit Tommy but luckily he was on position to wave his fins and defended himself. It was really a terrifying encounter. Notes: background music has been swapped, now using music from youtube music library.

Amazing poisonous Sea Snake Survives From Fishing Net -Amazing Video 2017
 
01:44
Amazing poisonous Sea Snake Survives From Fishing Net -Amazing Video 2017 The Hydrophiinae, also known as coral reef snakes or sea snakes, are a subfamily of venomous elapid snakes that inhabit marine environments for most or all of their lives. Most are extensively adapted to a fully aquatic life and are unable to move on land, except for the genus Laticauda, which has limited land movement. They are found in warm coastal waters from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific and are closely related to venomous terrestrial snakes in Australia. All have paddle-like tails and many have laterally compressed bodies that give them an eel-like appearance. Unlike fish, they do not have gills and must surface regularly to breathe. Along with whales, they are among the most completely aquatic of all air-breathing vertebrates. Among this group are species with some of the most potent venoms of all snakes. Some have gentle dispositions and bite only when provoked, but others are much more aggressive. Currently, 17 genera are described as sea snakes, comprising 62 species Most Hydrophiinae are completely aquatic and have adapted to their environments in many ways, the most characteristic of which is a paddle-like tail that has improved their swimming ability. To a varying degree, the bodies of many species are laterally compressed, especially in the pelagic species. This has often caused the ventral scales to become reduced in size, even difficult to distinguish from the adjoining scales. Their lack of ventral scales means they have become virtually helpless on land, but as they live out their entire lifecycles at sea, they have no need to leave the water. The only genus that has retained the enlarged ventral scales is the sea kraits, Laticauda, with only five species. These snakes are considered to be more primitive, as they still spend much of their time on land, where their ventral scales afford them the necessary grip. Laticauda species are also the only sea snakes with internasal scales, i.e., their nostrils are not located dorsally. Since it is easier for a snake's tongue to fulfill its olfactory function under water, its action is short compared to that of terrestrial snake species. Only the forked tips protrude from the mouth through a divided notch in the middle of the rostral scale. The nostrils have valves consisting of a specialized spongy tissue to exclude water, and the windpipe can be drawn up to where the short nasal passage opens into the roof of the mouth. This is an important adaptation for an animal that must surface to breathe, but may have its head partially submerged when doing so. The lung has become very large and extends almost the entire length of the body, although the rear portion is thought to have developed to aid buoyancy rather than to exchange gases. The extended lung possibly also serves to store air for dives.

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!

Giant Snake Caught in Red Sea
 
04:17
Is this monster snake found in Red Sea real? According to a story on Facebook A monster snake of epic proportions that was responsible for the disappearance of over 300 tourists and over 120 divers in the Red Sea was found and killed by a special team of Egyptian Scientists and Divers... Images have been floating around the net showing what appears to be the carcass of what definitely has to be the world's biggest snake. The story circulating with the pictures claims the snake was found in the Red Sea. They claimed the snake was over 20 feet tall and as long as 3 ½ school buses...(approx 36 feet) The age of the beast, taken its considerable size into consideration was estimated to be over 100 years old. (2 audio takes) Images included pictures of the dead snake on top of some kind of military transport carrier, next to some tanks, being hoisted up by a helicopter among others... I was intrigued by the images as well as the story. I had my own questions and wanted answers... #1 How big can a snake get? #2 How long can a snake live? And last but not least... Who is they? The longest snake in the world is the reticulated python and can grow up to 30 feet long, and according to the people at Guinness World Records the record for longest snake ever in captivity goes to a python named “Medusa” Even at 30 feet long, that's not even as long as one school bus. Reticulated pythons live on average 15 to 20 years with some having reached 25 to 30 years old. Now... Who... is... they? The story claims a specialized team of scientists and divers tracked and killed the raging reptile and as if to give the story some credence they listed some names... They included Scientists like Drs, Karim Mohammed , Mohammed Sharif and Mr. Sea...as well as specialized divers Abdullah Karim, Wael Mohammed and mahmoud Shafik. This would not be the first time a giant reptile was claimed to be caught on film... This pic was alleged to be taken by Belgian Helicopter pilot Col Remy Van Lierde somewhere over the Congo in 1959 at heights over 500 feet, making the snake an estimated 200 feet long. The colonel also claimed, that when going in for a closer look the giant snake it rose up preparing to attack if the helicopter got any closer. So is this dead, dead sea snake real or a hoax? A few things to consider... When I researched these names, the only references I could find of them only lead back to the snake story on some very less than reputable news sites. Not to mention, one of the Dr's names in the article is “Dr. Mr. Sea.” Drawing upon extensive investigative and forensic knowledge gained by my many years of watching Law and Order and CSI, the original, not those lame copy cats..(really just did a google search). I was able to deduce that these photos and the snake are REAL!!! These absolutely 100% real photos of this authentically dead snake began to show up in 2012 on some Persian and Arabic language web sites. But...they did not originate there. They go back as far as 2010 and were originally published by some Vietnamese IT Students under the title “Vietnam Army Captured Giant Snake.” The only thing not real in the pics were the soldiers, and military vehicles. They are in fact just the kind of really cool toys my dad never bought for me. But the snake is real, but would be at most three feet long. Using forced perspective and some clever positioning, these students were able to execute one of the funnest looking hoaxes I think I've ever seen. Sorry internets!

Sea Snake and big Spanish Mackerel
 
05:39
Description Olive Sea Snakes can be very inquisitive and aggressive during the mating season. I had shot this large Spanish Mackerel in 10 meter depth and my breakaway rig separated from my gun as it is designed to do. The Mackerel took off with my rig (30m shooting rope, blue water bungee and 2 atmosphere float). I was waiting for my gun to float back to the surface. What happened next was that an Olive Sea Snake selected my wooden "Riffe Island" gun as its mate. What do you do ? Leave the gun alone and follow the Mackerel and hope to find it later ? The risk of loosing my gun was too big. I rather loose the big Spanish to Sharks. I have chosen to stay with my gun and get rid of the Sea Snake first. The Sea Snake had a go at me - fortunately into my chest and I didn't get bitten. It was the first time to have an experience like that. Well, I kept pushing it away and convinced the Snake to leave me alone. The Mackerel however- in the mean time - had towed my float 100 meter away. I finally caught up to my float 10 minutes later and fought this handsome Spanish. Luckily there were no Sharks around - so I got hold of the Spanish Mackerel with no incident. NB: I had played with all sorts of Sea Snakes before. They are generally mild tempered sea creatures. Sea Snakes have to breathe in regular intervals. So - they normally come up to get some air - check you out, play with you, swim around your legs and gun and they swim back to the bottom. I do enjoy them generally and find it entertaining. This agro Olive Sea Snake was different and it scared the .... out of me as it charged into my chest. You don't want to get bitten. Drop for drop - the Olive Sea Snake is one of the deadliest Snakes in the ocean.The Olive Sea snake features a potent neurotoxic venom (attacks the nervous system and brain) as well a myotoxic venom (it destroys muscle tissues). Just one bite can kill 20 men (reference Nat. Geographic channel). Please handle Olive Sea Snakes with care if they come close to you......

DEADLIEST SNAKE IN AMERICA - POISONOUS CORAL SNAKE SWIMS FAST ON THE WATER
 
02:18
Deadliest snake in America. While bass fishing I come across a deadly coral snake that was swimming very fast across the water. At first I thought it was a scarlet snake but as I got closer I was shocked to see it was a venomous snake . They certainly do not look like one of the worlds most dangerous snakes as they are very beautiful and relatively small compared to other poisonous snakes. I have done some herping in various areas of Florida and this is one of the top 10 snakes I was always hoping to encounter. I was surprised to finally find one swimming in a canal of all places as I did not realize they are a somewhat aquatic species . My girlfriend thought it was funny how I reacted when I realized what it was but I was pretty excited as it was amazing to finally see the deadly coral snake in person :) Follow me on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/fisheguy/ Use code "fisheguy" for a 15% discount of anything on the site! http://www.BRUISERBAITS.com Use code "MIKEM-15" (Use all caps) at checkout for 15% off anything on the site! http://www.BASSADDICTIONGEAR.com Use code "25VIPCASH" for a $25 discount! http://www.kistlerrods.com My fishing videos offer clean , wholesome viewing for kids and children of all ages so the whole family can enjoy them without fear of foul language or offensive material :) JOHN 3:3 KJV rattlesnake rattle snake rattler water moccasin cottonmouth copperhead mamba cobra puff adder tiger snake krait boomslang brown snake taipan russell's viper sea snake death adder gaboon viper python anaconda boa constrictor garter pine scarlet ribbon striped indigo banded mud kingsnake corn rat coachwhip black racer hognose ringneck milk queen crowned gopher common king red bellied
