|This news from the lucky (well they keep their eyes open) guys who previously brought you photos of raptors and dolphins off St. John's Island.|
This time, Chim Chee Kong writes,
Me and my two colleagues (Lim Swee Cheng & Jeff Chouw) were very lucky to meet this amphibious sea snake (Laticauda colubrina) near the jetty of St. John's Island on last Friday (24 Jun 2005).
Staff of TMSI [Tropical Marine Science Institute, NUS] have had two previous encounters but this is the first time a photograph has been taken.
It was a cloudy morning (around 10am) with no raptors hovering above.
There were some bulges on the snake's body and the snake was twisting and turning "uncomfortably", so I guess it was digesting a meal.
