Sea snakes have deadly venom, and a bite from a sea snake can kill fast.
They also inhabit the sea of Qatar, and can even be seen beached on the country's shores.

An exception can be when they are in an amourous mood, and fall in love with the pipes connecting your mouth to your scuba equipment!
For a deeper look at this fascinating creature, check out Fran Gillespie's latest article, Qatar Sea Snakes, accompanied by vivid photographs and a Steve Irwin movie showing him swimming with the creatures.
