The two major groups, the Hydrophiidae and the Laticaudidae, have both evolved from the terrestrial Australian elapid snakes and comprise 80% of living species of sea snakes.
The Hydrophiidae, or true sea snakes, are the only species of sea snakes with breeding populations in Australian waters.
All species of the Hydrophiidae, the largest of the five groups of sea snakes, have exploited the viviparity (have live young) that exists in some of their terrestrial ancestors, and have thus freed themselves entirely from the need to return to land to breed.

Among the 500 species of venomous snake (families Atractaspididae, Viperidae, Elapidae, and Hydrophiidae) fewer than 200 have been responsible for severe envenoming of humans ending in death or permanent disability.
The venom glands of Elapidae, Hydrophiidae, and Viperidae are situated behind the eye, surrounded by compressor muscles (Fig.
The neurotoxins of Elapidae and Hydrophiidae are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, whereas the much larger molecules of Viperidae venoms are taken up more slowly through lymphatics.

Superimposition of reproductive mode data from the literature over phylogenetic classification systems reveals that viviparity (live-bearing reproduction) has evolved on at least 35 independent occasions among the Serpentes, once in the Amphisbaenia, and once in the Ichthyosauria.
Of the ophidian origins of the live-bearing mode, at least fourteen have occurred in the Colubridae, twelve in the Viperidae, three in the Hydrophiidae (used in the sense of Smith et al., 1977), and one in each of the following groups: Boidae, Acrochordidae, Tropidophiidae, Uropeltidae, Typhlopidae, and Elapidae.
As phylogenetic relationships are clarified, further origins seem likely to be detected, particularly in the Colubridae, Hydrophiidae, Scincidae, and Iguanidae.

 Venomous Snakes: The Hydrophiidae
The Hydrophiidae is a family comprising species that live a mainly or completely aquatic existence.
Most are found in the area between the Persian Gulf and the seas and oceans around the Indoaustralian archipelago, with a few reaching the Pacific coasts of the Americas: none are recorded from the Atlantic or Eurasian waters.
The relationship of the Hydrophiidae to the Elapidae and Viperidae has been closely examined in recent years, and a number of alternative taxonomic arrangements proposed, most of which seem to involve demoting the Hydrophiidae to a subfamily of the Elapidae.

If you dislike snakes or have other reasons to view them with a steely eye, then the old dictum applies: "Know your enemy".
There are three primary families of venomous snakes: the Elapidae, the Viperidae and the Hydrophiidae.
The Hydrophiidae are the seasnakes, which are essentially elapid snakes modified for life in the oceans.

Colubrids represent by far the most species of snakes found in the United States.
California has a total of: 1 in Leptopyplopidae, 2 in Boidae, 28 in Colubridae, 1 in Hydrophiidae, and 6 in Viperidae (38 species total)
Extreme temperatures are dangerous for snakes due to their elongate shape - the surface area to volume ratio in snakes is such that they heat up rapidly.

The familes Hydrophiidae (true sea snakes) and Laticaudidae (sea kraits) make up the majority of the sea snake population.
These snakes are located in mainly tropical to subtropical climates such as Australia, Sri Lanka, Japan, Taiwan, and Fiji

Twenty-one species of snakes belonging to 6 families occur (including offshore) in the UAE.
Of these, only four terrestrial species (Family Viperidae - True Vipers) and eight marine species (Family Hydrophiidae) are potentially dangerous.
Of the four Viper species found in the UAE the Saw-scaled Viper (Echis carinatus) is potentially the most dangerous with case fatalities reported as 5-10% in hospitalized cases.
