A Beaked Sea Snake is a snake that lives in the ocean. They are often mistaken for a fish because they have a long, thin body that is covered in scales. Beaked Sea Snakes have a small head with a beak-like nose and they use their long tail to steer through the water.

These snakes can be found in warm waters all over the world, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Philippines. They eat small fish and crustaceans and can grow up to 2 metres long.

Beaked Sea Snakes are harmless to humans and very rarely seen on land. If you do see one, please keep your distance and enjoy this beautiful creature from a safe distance!
