    Another one yesterday in almost the same spot outside the kitchen door. My wife found it when she went out to water some plants.

    The gentleman on my left caught this sea snake and let me hold it.
    Do I look a bit uneasy? That might be because I was aware of this:
    The venom of this elapid, Laticauda colubrina, is a very powerful neurotoxic protein, with a subcutaneous LD50 in mice of 0.45 mg/kg body weight.[6] The venom is an α-neurotoxin that disrupts synapses by competing with acetylcholine for receptors on the postsynaptic membrane, similar to erabutoxins and α-bungarotoxins.[7] In mice, lethal venom doses cause lethargy, flaccid paralysis, and convulsions in quick succession before death. Dogs injected with lethal doses produced symptoms consistent with fatal hypertension and cyanosis observed in human sea snake bite victims.[6]

    I'm not sure about the exact species, but it was in Malaysia.
