About this book

Describes the varieties and distribution of sea snakes, how they go about their daily lives underwater, what they eat and what eats them, how they reproduce and grow, and how they cope with excess salt and scarcity of freshwater. It also discusses how they adjust to diving at depth, enduring long periods without breathing, and describes the venom and how it functions.
