Sea-snakes are dangerous to the diver?

There are approximately 55 species of marine snakes known, all restricted to the Pacific Ocean. The most known, striped-sea-snake usually not afraid of human presence, and became extremely docile. Often found on islands, atolls, beaches and rocks by the sea, has potentially deadly poison to humans, but hardly accidents will happen, since they are not handled.

At sea,  the snakes generally ignore divers, and if them approach, it is curiosity.

Out of fear, some just trying to scare its, which may result in an attack. When provoked it becomes extremely determined to attack. Despite the wet suits provide good protection, no one can completely avoid the bite.
