Photographer's Note

Location: Perhentian Islands, Sugar Wreck dive site.
Taken during a safety stop at 5 metres.
Sea Snakes must surface to breath air every 45 minutes. We were lucky enough to see one doing this just a few metres away. It scared the hell out of our dive guide because the currence made the snake drift towards us. The Banded Sea Snake is one of the most venomous snakes in the world but it never bites unless provoced.
