The sea is a habitat alien to most reptiles, and the adaptation of sea snakes to a marine existence is a fascinating chapter in biology. Sea Snakes describes the varieties and distributions of sea snakes, how they go about their daily lives underwater, what they eat and what eats them, and how they reproduce and grow. It also discusses how sea snakes cope with excess salt and scarcity of freshwater, and how they adjust to diving at depth and enduring long periods without breathing. The nature of their venom and how it functions in subduing large, active prey is also explained. Sea snakes interact with humans both in beneficial and in harmful ways. Harold Heatwole explains these and also discusses how we can best share the world with these beautiful and marvelous creatures. The book contains 34 color photographs.
