Fake Snake

The first time I saw one of these I was told it was a seasnake but it couldn't be, there are no sea snakes in the northern red sea. It is in fact a harlequin snake eel (Myrichthys colubrinus)

Unfortunately I only got to take one shot before he got shy (well actually he was hungry and looking for some tucker).
