Breathing atmospheric oxygen gives creatures many advantages in a marine world where most everything else has to breath dissolved oxygen. Lungs can acquire more oxygen than gills can. I can't find the percentages at the moment, but they are quite significant. It's why ceteceans are so adept at eating basically whatever they want in the ocean. More oxygen meant more oxygen available for brain function. Evolution happened and before you know it you have orcas eating the livers of great white sharks just because they like the taste.

So a sea snake gets atmospheric oxygen and already has more ability to function to do basically everything compared to most everything else around it.

38

u/ArrestDeathSantis Jul 01 '22

Oh, apparently when they attack human, which is very rare in the wild, it's mostly been because the orcas confused them for something else, hit them accidentally while trying to eat something else, in one specific case a dog, or because they were attacked first by hunters or, one day probably, a tik toker xD

21

u/Chillark Jul 01 '22

I remember reading about an incident near scotland(I think) where a couple of young orcas were harrowing this one sailboat. Nothing like an out right attack buy they had surrounded the boat for a couple hours nudging and pushing it around.

They basically mistake the surf board for a giant female. Giant = attractive in sea snake world. Also, their eye sight is super weak. So what happens is that a snake sees what he thinks is a giant (and suuuuper attractive) female, they go to check it out, and it’s not. Disappointment is immeasurable.

Then they forget about it (within an hour or so) and reapproach the same dude on the same surf board again, because you know, snakes n shit. And another round of disappointment.

Their venom is actually more fast acting than cobra venom because in the ocean you either get something right now, or you wont get it at all.

There's no biting then chasing down the corpse in another place, as other fish or whatever will piece it apart in no time flat.

When you are born in a land of literal tomfuckery and real life mythical beasts that can most likely kill you, it's just daily life to you.

You didn't watch with sound. The guy said no, the snake respected his bodily autonomy and boundaries and then politely left without calling him an ugly bitch or a slut that just wants to fuck the chads.

Sea snakes are extensively adapted to a fully aquatic life and are unable to move on land, except for the sea kraits, which have limited land movement. They are found in warm coastal waters from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific and are closely related to venomous terrestrial snakes in Australia.

Most true sea snakes are ovoviviparous, meaning females give live birth from eggs stored in the snake's body. This is because these snakes rarely visit land, and their eggs won't incubate underwater. Therefore, the females keep the eggs and give birth to nearly fully formed snakes while swimming in the ocean.

I can't tell you why, but this really disturbs me.

Imagine you're just chilling in the middle of the ocean and a casual snake just approaches you to ask about your insurance situation. Unreal.

This guy is from western Australia. He is a professional fisherman & encounters sea snakes + other really impressive (mostly dangerous) wildlife all the time.
