    I give them lots of space when I'm diving, unlike the guys that like to poke and prod them out of their hiding spots.

    Here another picture...

    They are rated: semi-agressive.
    Meaning don't bother them and they won't bother you...

    Are these guys up where you go snorkeling or do they frequent, say, Eagle Beach?

    never saw one in the water at eagle, palm, druif or arashi

    they frequent areas with rocks/coral so they can hide

    Thumbs up

    >>> "they frequent areas with rocks/coral so they can hide"
    Ditto! Even on land most snakes like rocks. So if on the east side of the island don't pick up rocks as there are a few poisonous snakes over there.

    It's a Sharptail Eel. Pretty harmless as far as sea-life goes.... just don't mess with it and it will leave you alone.

    I was at "baby" beach about 5 years ago sitting on the sand right by the surf with the gentle waves lapping at my hands and toes. My eyes were closed and I was enjoying the sun. Hubby was snorkling over by the sea wall far, far away. He looked over at me at one point and saw me "dancing" on the shore where he had left me. Since I am not one to break out in random dance numbers, he was taken aback...he immediately swam back and when he came over he realized what I was really doing was the dance of the I just held and threw back in the ocean a seacreature very similar to a snake that was crawling around my fingers...apparantly the creature enjoyed sliding over my fingers and I thought it was just the waves I was feeling, a misconception I won't be having again... Can you say YIKES!
