    47 years in So Cal beach communities and I have never seen one. Hell, up till now, I didn't even know it existed. I always thought sea snakes were more of a Caribbean or Mediterranean thing.

    Guess if you ever run into one on your mountain bike, it was because you rode off the end of a pier and are now swimming for your life!

    Right! Forgot about sea snakes!

    Certain sea snakes have very toxic venom (ie milligrams needed to kill) needed to paralyze their fish dinners, but they are rare and IIRC very timid.

    Sea snakes are not applicable, as the snakes have to be land-based! MCYawn cheated and therefore should be severely punished! A good tar and feathering followed by a nice keel-hauling with a chilled Chianti on the side should suffice...what say we?

    Confiscate one months' trust fund check. That oughta do it.
    He don't look like the type that could survive a keel-hauling, Chief.

    Speaking of sea snakes, that reminds me. An old surfing buddy had one, a REAL poisonous one, wash up onto his surfboard and bite him around his knee. Since a sea snake bite of that really poisonous variety is always fatal, he paddled in, thinking he was a goner.

    Turned out it was a 'dry' bite, but it kept us out of the water for the rest of the day. That was way down around Acapulco. Lotta good beach breaks down that way.

    Ha,ha of course nobody ever sees them in So. Cal. because they basically don't exist there. A couple sightings which means they were carried over seas on a few occasions. Here is a quote frame that link.

    Uncommon in California. Sight records include: San Clemente beach in Orange County, 1983; LA Bay, 1961; and the San Diego Area, 1985.

    This snake is probably the most widely distributed snake in the world, inhabiting the Indian and Pacific Oceans, including the coasts of Africa, Asia, Australia, Mexico, including Baja California, and Central America.
