Living in the marine waters of Thailand and Sri Lanka are the venomous Peter’s sea snakes that are 1 metre long. It is a bluish-grey snake covered in scales and has a tail with dark bands. A flattened head, cylindrical body and a laterally flattened tail make its life easy in the sea. Eels and fish are its favourite food.
