An interesting event has been witnessed recently on the social media platform when a man went paddleboarding and came face to face with a sea snake. The video was recorded and posted by Brodie Moss. He is a famous YouTuber and posted this video on Instagram and his YouTube channel. While he was engaged in the water sport in the deep-sea water, he saw a huge snake swimming towards him. After approaching quickly toward the board, the video shows that the huge yellow sea snake placed its head on the paddle after getting too nearby. At the end of the video, the snake again disappeared inside the water.

In his official Instagram account, he uploaded the video along with the caption, “sea snakes normally avoid humans but this time of year they become very active, sexually frustrated and potentially aggressive as they search for a mate like this old fella who appeared from the ocean floor and followed me around on my paddleboard before disappearing”

Sea snakes

Sea snakes spend the majority of their lives in or near water. The majority are poisonous and feed nearly entirely on fish eggs. Sea snakes, with a few exceptions, have evolved to live entirely in the water and have zero mobility strength on land. They live in warm coastal seas from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, and they are tightly connected to Australia's poisonous land snakes. Sea snakes have paddle-like tails, and several are resembled as eel, due to their laterally compressed anatomy. They lack gills and should emerge to the surface to breathe on a regular basis, unlike fish.
