    Snake eats Moray at Sharkpoint

    Recently Instructor/Photographer Joel Tomalin took this photo of a 2.5+ metre Banded Sea Snake eating a Moray Eel at daytrip dive site Sharkpoint. Apparently the whole ordeal took about 20 minutes. From injecting the Moray, twisting and tugging to loosen it whilst in the hole, pulling it out of the hole up to swallowing it.

    I'm absolutely terrified of sea snakes. They provoke extreme panic in me that I find impossible to control. I could look at one from 10 meters or more away..... but if it swims in my direction! :11::11::11::11::11:

    At the end of the day we are all going home.

    There is nowhere else to go.

    Actually, I'll probably be diving Shark Point in just over 4 weeks. If we go there it'll be my third dive on that site. So far I've never seen a snake anywhere in Thailand.

    The bloody things are enough to re-decorate the colour of my wetsuit! :11: It's a serious phobia with me....

    I'm sure they're there. In around 45 dives I've never seen one though.....which is cool by me!
