    Exclamation Cool new species of sea snakes is already endangered

    there's a new yellow sea snake from Costa Rica that has a cool hunting technique. it floats in the water in a loose coil with it's head pointing downwards to strike fish. it's like a floating GTP. Pretty Neat!


    anyway looks like they've only been found so far in a small part of Costa Rica (123 square miles) and "collectors" have already been harvesting them.


    Read about it here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete....html?ITO=1490

    So cool! I love evolution - does such strange things. Hopefully people leave it be before it's lost for good...
    No cage is too large - nature is the best template - a snoot can't be booped too much

    I hope they go to zoos and aquariums that figure out how to breed them.
