Sea Snakes are now considered to be a Sub-family of the Elapid snakes.

They have extremely strong venom, however bites are extremely rare.

Most species have no inclination to bite humans, however a few species do bite and due to the potency of their venoms, extreme care should be taken.

If bitten the treament should be the same as for an elapid Snake
(All dangerous Australian land snakes are Elapids)
