Do all sea snakes have poisonous bites?

    Yes, even if they inflict a bite, they will usually use a small amount of venom. Even the short fangs (2.5–4.5 mm) can penetrate the skin so the poison will enter the blood. It is said that sea snakes can open their mouths wide enough to bite a man on the thigh. The bite of the sea snake is painless. However, half an hour later the following symptoms appear: stiffness, muscle aches and spasm of the jaw, pain in the bitten limb. The powerful neurotoxins contained in the venom cause blurred vision, drowsiness and respiratory paralysis.
