Banded Sea Krait
In his words: “The Raja Ampat Islands are simply the best…with the highest biodiversity anywhere. It’s a world to suspend your disbelief and soak in the unparalled beauty of a resource unequaled in today’s other regions. Such an ecosystem is the stuff of dreams…both above and below the surface. I always am awed by the experience. Put a trip there on your bucket list and help preserve this magnificent oasis of the underwater universe.”
