There is a unique sea snake nursery in the Mission River and Lauren is worried about the impacts of the mining development. The best way to spot sea snakes is a night so the guys must be super prepared… The term ‘sea snakes’ covers snakes that spend their lives in the water. They can be both venomous and non-venomous so extra care must be taken when handling. There is a lot of research still to be done on sea snakes. *DISCLAIMER* Jack Randall has extensive experience handling and studying wild animals. Where filming with dangerous animals Made in the Wild works with scientists and wildlife institutions. Do not attempt to handle wild animals without appropriate training and permits. Venom Australia: Venom Australia is a mission to spot 20 venomous creatures out in the wild. Along the way we meet with scientists, experts and conservationists to find out everything there is to know about Venom. Thank you to Lauren Dibbon for sharing her time and research with us!

Awesome to see a sea snake survey! I'd love to cover the yellow bellied sea snake someday, the 2nd and almost forgotten elapid in the USA. They only seem to turn up dead/dying on the beaches of very southern california coast during el nino years. They also use brackish rivers/mangrove ecosystems but its probably further south of the USA like Costa Rica as I'm just not aware of mangroves around San Diego -- its probably not core habitat (speculation), they likely just occasionally get caught in el nino weather patterns that push them further north than usual. Great to see how you guys do this in Australia!

Another great video; herping off a boat must be an incredible experience. I'm so used to finding snakes under rocks or on roads that I've never even thought about how people would look for sea snakes, aside from diving maybe. This channel deserves way more attention.

Spencer Williams it was just out of this world good! The video actually only shows just a few highlights, we found over 20 snakes in a few hours, it was wild! This area is famous as a sea snake nursery, but is hard to get to as it is at least 1 flight away from a major town or city... yes there are also many diving spots in Australia that you can find the mm quite commonly. Thanks for watching and thanks for the encouragement!

Pretty cool, as a herper from the south west united states I have always wanted to go to Australia to check out the sea snakes. They seem to be vary underrepresented in the herping community. Keep up the great videos they are awesome👍

Charles Heim thank you Charles!! Much appreciate the support! Yes agreed that sea snakes are very underrepresented in the community, I guess it takes more effort to find them though! Very much recommend you visit Australia :)

Thanks for watching!! :) **MISTAKE: we noticed a small error in our graphic during the non-venomous file snake find (this species does not also live on land, it lives only in water).
