Sea Snake!

As we collected shells on the beach today, we happened upon a washed up sea snake which looked exactly like this:

Thinking that the snake was dead, I gave it a tentative lift, only to find that it was alive and well. He was quite docile, mainly because he was trying to swallow some horrendously large meal. He is also quite poisonous. When we left him to wash back out to sea, A. said that she "will have a lot to tell Ruby about when we get back home."

    Ruby has been wishing the photo magnet of Ava that is on our fridge was a secret door to Mexico. But I bet Ruby would have locked the door against the sea snake!
