*This is what I get for getting all riled up about the king cobra that somebody found under their clothes dryer in Florida last week.

Now, some lucky person walked up on a tropical, highly venomous yellow-bellied sea snake on the beach in California.

Oxnard, California to be exact. It’s just north of the extremely popular Malibu Beach area. And guess which freelance writer was just there last week!

Pelamis platura is the scientific name for the snake. So I could have gone with the cozy headline “Pelamis Platura Arrives In Sunny Southern California”, but that might not have prompted you to read about — and learn how to avoid — these legless devils!

So just slide … or would that be slither … on over to EURThisNthat.
