TURTLE-HEADED SEA SNAKE

The Turtle-Headed Sea Snake has made a nice living feeding off of fish eggs and will move slowly throughout their range looking for egg clusters.

Once they find a nice, tasty egg cluster they will use a specialized scraper, found on their upper jaw, to scrape the “caviar” off of the branch or ocean floor.

Diver Tip:

Don’t be fooled by the colour of this snake. Although, they are typically a blue-grey colour throughout most of their range, they will have this amazing, ringed form when living on the reef.
