Fiji Sea Snakes on the reefs

Just got back from Kadavu Island in Fiji and thought I'd share these pics of the White Lip Banded Sea Krait.

Although these guys are very venomous, they are so placid we never have any worries swimming right next to them. In the pic with the diver, the snake is hard to see in the bottom left corner.

Beautiful! I've never been fortunate enough to swim with sea snakes. I've heard they're super docile! I really hope to get over to your side of the earth some day. Great idea Lucille, see you there!

Fauna Road trip!

It's a great idea, you should all come....

Yes they are very docile, simply ignore you most of the time and are actually very handlable when they do things like climbing up the engine onto an anchored boat .....

Very cool pics Helen. I know zilch about the herpetofauna of Fiji. What kinds of things do you see on the island itself?

We have 4 land snakes, 2 sea snakes, 3 species of iguana, 2 tree frogs and an apparently unlimited number of skinks and geckos.
