Venomous Yellow Bellied Sea Snake Washes Up On Coronado, California

Venomous Yellow Bellied Sea Snake Washes Up On Coronado, California

SAN DIEGO – A potentially dangerous sea snake washed up on the shore of Coronado beach Tuesday, lifeguards said.


A picture of the pelamis platura, a black and yellow snake, was taken by Coronado lifeguards.  It was seen near one of their lifeguard towers.

Although it is extremely rare to see this type of snake along the California coast, another one was seen on the shores of Huntington Beach on December 12.

Some believe the warmer than normal water temperatures could be the reason the snakes are traveling further north to feed on fish and eels.

People are advised not to touch the animal. Sea snake venom can cause damage to skeletal muscle.

The sea snake can grow to be 35 inches long.
