      Sea snakes mainly inhabit Atlantic and Pacific tropical and subtropical seas and are a subfamily of venomous elapid snakes (Elapidae) that consists of Hydrophiinae (true sea snakes) and Laticaudinae (sea kraits; Smith , Dunson , Heatwole , Rasmussen ).Throughout the world, 62 sea snake species in Hydrophiinae and eight species in Laticaudinae are known (Smith .   published a paper discussing the evolution of sea snakes extensively. In this paper, they mentioned that genus Laticauda is quite similar to many Elapidae land snakes. In our paper, our objective is more focused on chemical structure rather than evolution.

    Sea snake, any of more than 60 species of highly venomous marine snakes of the cobra family (Elapidae). There are two groups: the true sea snakes (subfamily Hydrophiinae) and the sea kraits (subfamily Laticaudinae). Although their venom is the most potent of all snakes, human fatalities are rare. Sea snakes, or "coral reef snakes", are venomous elapid live in marine environments for most or all of their lives. At present, 17 genera are described as sea snakes, with 62 species.. They evolved from snakes that lived on the land. Some sea snakes still have some of the behaviour and traits of their ancestors, such as Laticauda, which can move a little on land.

Sea snake venoms are highly toxic. One “drop” (about ml) contains enough venom to kill three adult men; some sea snake species can eject seven to eight such “drops” in a single bite. Fortunately for fishermen, sea snakes are not aggressive, and even when they do bite man, rarely inject much of their highly toxic venom.

Snakes being my favourite animals, this is the sort of book I've always wanted. Mark O'Shea provides informative profiles of species of snake (almost one in six of all currently known species), each with high-quality photographs, and spanning the breadth of the snake family tree/5(3).

In general, the apparatus for envenomation in sea snakes is less effective than that found among land snakes, but the toxins are much more potent. Most bites by sea snakes do not result in envenomation, particularly if a wetsuit is worn.In the decision to include the new genera of Bogertophis, Gonyosoma, and Senticolis on this website and in the genus Elaphe, we have taken the "Monograph of the Colubrid Snakes of the Genus Elaphe Fitzinger" by Klaus-Dieter Schulz as an example (the authors of this website strongly recommend this book for every serious Elaphe enthusiast).(1) Reptiles of the World: the Crocodilians, Lizards, Snakes, Turtles and Tortoises of the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.
