Examples

  • Though sea snakes all possess a vertically flat, paddle-like tail (a feature not seen in any other snakes), most snake experts have agreed that the term ‘sea snake’ includes two quite different groups of aquatic elapids: the laticaudids, or sea kraits, and the hydrophiids (or hydrophids or hydropheids), or true sea snakes.
