SWIMMING WITH VENOMOUS SNAKES! (New Caledonia, 2018)

296 ratings | 7134 views
Video from Tinley Park March 2019 is up now! "TINLEY PARK NARBC REPTILE EXPO, MARCH 2019!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOM_IL07vKY --~-- What snake lives in the ocean, but isn’t a sea snake? 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! Dāv Kaufman’s Reptile Adventures I’m Dāv Kaufman, and I’m obsessed with reptiles, and if you are too, then this is your channel! I travel the planet in search of reptiles and amphibians in wild, exotic places and also tour some of the most incredible private reptile facilities, visit amazing reptile expos, and go behind-the-scenes at reptile zoos from all over the world!

OK, I need some information here I'm heading to New Caledonia here soon I'm a runner and a swimmer/snorkler, and I intend to explore Typically I'm only worried about snakes when I have my dog What do I need to know?

+Dāv Kaufman's Reptile Adventures love your videos. THANKS!
The only snakes there are the ones in this video, and they are common along the shore, but they pose zero threat to you or your dog as long as you watch that your dog isn't disturbing them. Have a good time!

man i really got annoyed when you free handled that thing one of my good mates that doesnt know shit about snakes got bit by a green mamba thinking it was a boomslang because of other people free handling boomslange at a reptile show when we were younger same shit can easily happen here with sea snakes... granted my mate is a moron and lucky to live, free handling is just bad mate, doesnt matter if youre proving that the snake is harmless rather sit next to a viper basking or something similar, free handling... its not the way... just my 2 cents on the subject, not saying im right

Well I'd hope your friend learned their lesson. Just because you see someone handle something, doesn't mean you have the ability to. If he had known ANYTHING about the types of snakes in your area, he probably would've realised that it was a mamba. I don't think it's those people fault for handling a snake they KNEW they could handle. Your friend did not put enough time or dedication to learning about these animals and got bit doing something very irresponsibly. Glad he's alright though, mamba bites are nasty business from what I hear.

The problem with saying "venomous ± dangerous" is that some berk will try and give a Coastal Taipan a hug or play snuggles with a Fer-de-lance... And they'll happily bite his/her face off. I keep Hognose - who've managed to get me a few times - they're about as venomous as the FWC but mine will sit on my glasses eating a mouse & watching time team - try to do that with a FWC and you'll be playing hunt the eyeball... You're entirely right - but don't underestimate the dumbass dimension that's out there - like the cretin the pitched a rattlesnake onto his daughters back - then sued the wildlife park because the snake gave the poor girl the full works (one of viperkeepers videos). Hopefully herpers have more sense but the idiot near me with the illegal crocodile - shows some don't. PS: anyone else loathe predictive autocorrect & the inability to edit comments..

By the way, which island in New Caledonia is this? I like to research on exotic islands and locations in case I win the lottery.
To protect the animals I find, I never reveal my locations. Sorry.
Richard Schiffman (6 months ago)
I have great respect for snakes. All the more reason why I would personally never handle one even if they are "docile".

LMAO - poisonality - I see what you did there!!!
lol :)
Nicole London (11 months ago)
Sweet, had been waiting for this one. I hadn't realized the differences between kraits and sea snakes - the wide ventral scales explain how that first one you saw got up the tree so easily. They're like halfway between a terrestrial and a sea snake. Beautiful creatures.
That's exactly right. I don't think that a proper sea snake could get up that tree
Smetlogik (11 months ago)
You cray cray 🤪 but that was one COOL snake.
Maybe a little :)

Wow. Awesome video.
Thank you!
IAMGiftbearer (11 months ago)
It's amazing that it didn't seem at all bothered by a total stranger picking it up! To me that says that there must be some types of snakes that have no innate fear of man. I wonder if the neonates are just as trusting! That would be interesting to know.
They had no idea what a human was and showed zero fear, so did most of the lizards.

Your one lucky guy
robin larouche (11 months ago)
That was cool man!!!!
Thanks!
Nice video! Keep 'em coming dude. It took you until you were 9 to get obsessed with reptiles? What took you so long? :-) I got hooked at 5 after catching a gopher snake under my Dad's car. He got me my first exotic for my 8th birthday. Rattle on dude.
I've always been a late bloomer :) Rattle On!

Typo in the title: New Caledoina. Should be New Caledonia
Felix Arthur (11 months ago)
Dāv Kaufman's Reptile Adventures No problem! I am glad you distanced 'venomous' from 'dangerous'. Important distinction!
Thanks for pointing that out!
Jason Longton (11 months ago)
I watched and enjoyed the old series, but these on location videos, showing the animals in their natural environments, are a whole other level. This is *really* cool stuff. Dav, your very lucky to be able to have these adventures, and thank you very much for sharing them wit the rest of us.
Thanks Jason! Feel free to share!

Val Drans (11 months ago)
Swimming with snakes and sharks. One brave person. Thanks for letting me live thru your crazy adventures. Pretty amazing stuff.
Thanks Val. The sharks were frustrating. They would all swim away from me as I chased them, and I couldn't get very good shots of them.
One lucky man!
Thanks! Hard work, sacrifice, and dedication is my luck :)

Cool Catch, also like how you saw it hunting at night in one of your previous videos. At least it didn’t Sauce your rainbow meal worms shirt. Nice education on this video Dav.

I agree with the dangerous animal moniker it is highly over used with snakes especially
Couldn't agree more
