Picture of a Laticauda colubrina, Yellow Lipped Sea krait
Laticauda colubrina has distinctive black stripes and a yellow snout with a paddle-like tail for swimming.
It spends much of its time underwater hunting, but returns to land to digest, rest, and reproduce.
Laticauda colubrina has a very powerful neurotoxic venom that it uses to hunt eels and small fish. Due to their affinity for land, yellow-lipped sea kraits often encounter humans, but the snakes are not aggressive and only bite when they feel threatened.
