Sea krait hunt

The unique and only recently discovered communal hunting behaviour of this population of sea kraits has never been filmed before and HD brings pristine clarity to the underwater footage. The snakes proved very inquisitive, wrapping themselves round the cameraman's legs. As a result, it was extremely hard to film natural behaviour while being sure to avoid the snakes' potentially lethal bite.
