Hydrophis Belcheri


The Life of Animals | Hydrophis Belcheri |  The Faint banded Sea Snake (Hydrophis belcheri), also known as the Belcher's ocean snake) is a species of elapid sea snake. The toxicity of this species' venom have been many times Called into question, with some herpetologists and snake enthusiasts naming either the beaked sea snake (Enhydrina schistosa) or the Inland Taipan (Oxyuranus microlepidotus) as having the most toxic venom.


The faint banded sea snake is of moderate size, ranging from 0.5 to 1 meter in length adult. Its thin body is usually chrome Yellowish in color and is surrounded by dark greenish bands. Head is short and has same color as that of bands. Provoked It may deliver a severe bite only after repeated treatments. It usually bites Fishermen handling nets but only 25% of Those Bitten are envenomed.

The scientific name commemorates the British explorer Sir Edward Belcher, and was named by John Edward Gray in 1849. 'Hydrophis' comes from Greek' hydro = water + 'ophis' = serpent,' belcheri 'here comes from Latin' belonging to a man named Belcher '. It is also Referred Faint as Banded Sea Snake and Belcher's Sea Snake. The faint-banded sea snake has been mistakenly Called the "hook-nosed sea snake" (which is Actually Enhydrina schistosa) and in one instance was Called the "blue-banded sea snake" (which is one name for Hydrophis Actually cyanocinctus).
