In this amazing video, a brave – or foolhardy – banded sea krait has decided to nom a moray eel. It’s hard to express what a dumb idea that is, unless the animal doing the nomming is a great white shark, I guess. Morays are one of the most badass denizens of the deep, and I certainly wouldn’t have got anywhere near as close to it as this diver did, even if it was busy being eaten at the time. Its business end is still in action. The video only lasts 2:40 – make sure you watch to the end.
