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.

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.
