Turtles and Sea Snakes; Reptilia

Reptiles are a special case where we have many more examples to see on the land than when scuba diving under the waters around Koh Phangan.

Green Turtle; Chelonia mydas

Most of these photos were taken here at Mae Haad Reef on Koh Phangan.

Hawksbill Turtle; Eretmochelys imbricata

Strangely enough, it looks like we have seen Hawksbill Turtles everywhere but our local dive sites

Banded Sea Snake; Laticauda colubrina

Technically poisonous but generally non-aggressive - not that divers should play with them!!
