Talking Baby Sea Krait determined to land

Just had to show these pics of a baby Banded Sea Krait, Laticauda colubrina, determined to come up on a resort beach in Fiji.

It was in the surf coming to the beach in the middle of a resort (where it would have caused great alarm and despondency, not to mention mass panic and possible snake slaughter), so I moved it to a quieter location, but it was absolutely determined to come ashore - every time I put it back into the sea it turned around and came right back up.

They do come ashore to warm up, digest, shed, and give birth, and this one was so small it might have been a neonate, so I wonder whether they spend a lot of time on land when new born?

Anyway, it was too cute not to share, hope you enjoy.

What a beauty! I have to drive the L.A. fwys to see a Laudicauda colubrina in a tank at Aquarium of the Pacific!
