Black and blue striped water snake, about 80cm long. Very venomous (possibly lethal).
Found at the coast of north-east Taiwan, was in a smaller pool of water at the rugged rocky coast.
I was going climbing and swimming with some friends when we encountered this gorgeous snake, it was very timid. Luckily I was able to get a closeup.
