Banded Sea Snake/Yellow-lipped Sea Snake

Laticauda colubrina


The most common type of sea snake found in the Philippines. Although they are not aggressive, they are highly venomous. This particular sea snake was hunting at a depth of 60ft. I have seen sea snakes at depths of 90 feet before.


Coral Reef. Spotted this one at Bahura.
