Pelamis platurus Cacaluta, Huatulco Oax.
This Yellowbelly Sea Snake was dying on the beach. The tip of it's tail was chewed up.
This sea snake was observed during the day in a debris slick in the Gulf of Chiriqui off the northwest coast of Panama.
Anteriormente perteneciente al género Pelamis, es bastante común encontrarla a la orilla de la playa en la bahía de chamela y sus playas contiguas. Esta se encontraba en la playa y una pareja joven de turistas la estaban intentando devolver al mar con un palo.
Apareció en la playa, no se si es un organismo marino o no.

Caught in a fishing hook deployed to catch Marlin / sailfish
Close to the beach four people saw the snake and I take my camera and took pictures. I know there are poisonous snakes in the Pacific Ocean off Costa Rica.
