Beaked sea snake

Enhydrina schistosa

Description:

Beaked seasnakes are highly venomous sea snakes that are commonly seen in mangroves.

Habitat:

Mangroves

Notes:

I encountered this snake pretty much on every snorkel I did in the Lahoa mangrove channels. This species appears less docile than the more commonly sighted banded sea crait. The seasnakes are part of the cobra family - but usually even more venomous then their land based cousins.

Just found yet another photo of this spotting. Can any snake experts (mitchray??) verify this ID?
