Back off buddy!

An olive sea snake - Loloata Island, Papua New Guinea -- about 80' deep. These curious animals are extremely poisonous - often referred to as 'Seven step snakes' cuz you can only go about seven paces before you die after being bitten! Somewhat curious, one has to be a bit careful doing close up portraits. This guy was about six feet long - rather large for the species.
