Deadly venomous sea snakes wash up in California for the first time in 30 years

A venomous snake species has been discovered in California for the first time in nearly three decades.

– As far as the Golden State is concerned, the last sighting of a yellow-bellied sea snake was in the early 1980s amid an El Niño weather event.

With this year’s unusually strong El Niño and two sightings on beaches in Oxnard, California, scientists are asking the public to confirm whether these warm-water snakes have indeed returned.

– Yellow-bellied sea snakes produce the most deadly venom in the world.
