In addition to the 40+ species of land snakes in Hong Kong there have also been documented sightings of sea snakes over the years. While these encounters are quite rare there are several species thought to frequent local waters. However, due to heavy marine traffic, pollution and fishing activity these sightings are increasingly rare.
On HongKongSnakeID we record photos and video based on first hand accounts which means the quality of the content is high and the accuracy of observations does not depend on second or third hand accounts from other sources. In future if we are able to organize regular marine excursions in search of sea snakes we will be sure to record our findings for the benefit of the HongKongSnakeID community. If this is something you would like to see please send us an email or if you are feeling highly compelled please consider a donation using the button below which would help us cover costs for things like boat rental or travel to beaches. In the meantime please check out our FAQ page for links to other snake and wildlife related resources if you want additional information on Hong Kong’s Sea Snakes.
