Hey all,

Just rejoined the forum after a several year hiatus. Wanted to share some photos I took over the summer while doing field work in Niue and museum work in Australia. For my work I got a Nikon d7100 w/ a 70-300 mm lens, 18-55mm and just recently a 100 mm macro lens (for working with snakes). Hope you all enjoy!

Niue endemic sea krait (Laticauda schistorhynchus) at the Limu Pools.


Another Niue sea krait, just more close up.


Limu Pools. One of the most gorgeous places I have ever been.


Uga aka coconut crab we found in the forest


Rock formations at the Talava Arches


Blue banded sea krait, ( Laticauda laticaudata )

I have some more photos somewhere, if people are interested I can share some more.

Cheers,

Very cool photos B. Are the sea kraits venomous?

Sorry for the late response, I didn't see there was a reply on the thread.

The sea kraits are part of the same family as cobras and mambas, and are in fact closely related to all the terrestrial venomous snakes in Australia. So they are quite venomous, however, they have some of the most gentle dispositions. Even after taking tail clippings from them for DNA samples, I could photograph and handle them, and they weren't aggressive at all.
