Laticauda colubrina

Yellow lipped sea krait Laticauda colubrina

The snake has distinctive black stripes and a yellow snout, with a paddle-like tail for use in swimming.

It spends much of its time underwater in order for it to hunt, but returns to land to digest, rest, and reproduce. It has very potent neurotoxic venom which it uses to prey on eels and small fish. Because of their affinity to land, yellow-lipped sea kraits often encounter humans, but the snakes are not aggressive and only attack when feeling threatened.
