Olive sea snake

Olive sea snake is found in large numbers along the northern coast of Australia and nearby island groups. It is an highly venomous snake whose entire life cycle occurs in the ocean. It is capable of moving in the ocean for long periods between breathing at the surface.
A new study has found that male olive sea snakes may “attack” scuba divers as they think divers are potential rivals or mates and the females think that they are possible hiding places. The study was based on data collected in the Great Barrier Reef from 1994-95.
