Polynesian sea gods, a mysterious sea snake and a young scientist risking his life to collect its deadly venom – the intriguing discovery of a unique creature never filmed before.

Polynesian sea gods, a mysterious sea snake found only in the waters surrounding the small Pacific island of Niue and a charismatic scientist collecting its fatal venom – the result is the intriguing SEA OF SNAKES.

The journey untangles the incredible ways of the “Niue Sea Krait”, a unique snake species, amazingly adapted to life in the sea and on land. This extremely venomous snake has long been part of the island’s life and legends, yet it has remained a mystery to the outside world.

This deadly creature’s pristine marine habitat features crystal clear waters, coral reefs, undersea mountains and bubble caves teeming with tropical fish, dolphins, turtles and sharks.

Dr. Bryan Fry, an international authority on venom research, takes a very up close and personal look at this little known creature – witnessing its baffling behaviour for the first time, milking its deadly venom, and revealing the island’s legends.

A fascinating story with groundbreaking discoveries against a scenery which is simply breathtaking.
