Have you ever come across a sea snake? Chances are high that if you are not a diver or a fisherman on a prawn trawler you have never encountered one. You missed out! They are pretty cool. They adjusted perfectly from a life on land to their marine environment. They give birth to alive young in the water and can even breath through their skin. They are the Darwin finches of the ocean teaching us a lesson or two about evolution.
Our guest, James Nankivell, is a PhD student in evolutionary biology at Adelaide University, and he studies sea snakes.
