What Are the Most Poisonous Snakes in the World?

The sea snakes are the most poisonous snakes in the world, but they are so gentle toward people that fishermen frequently take them out of their nets with their bare hands!

Sea snakes use their venom to kill the fish and eels they eat. They have a truly wonderful tail for swimming. It is flat, like an oar, making them almost like acrobats in the water.

Like many of their land- based cousins, sea snakes love the sun, and many can be seen floating on the waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Sea snakes do not do well in captivity and, therefore, are rarely seen in an aquarium. They’d rather live free in the Indian or Pacific ocean.
