Habitat: Tropical oceanic waters around the world
Status: No conservation concerns
This is a venomous snake, being 10 times more venomous than the Egyptian Cobra, but it delivers a much smaller amount of venom. No human fatalities have ever been reported and actually it usually shows no concern when confronted and can easily be captured with a net. It’s reluctant to strike and when it does, it usually does so without injecting any venom.
Nevertheless, you best believe that If I saw this snake while swimming I would hightail it out of there faster than you could say “Swim, woman!”
