eScience. Seasnakes sensitive to underwater vibrations

Sseasnake (1)nakes scare the bejeezus out of many people and seasnakes even more so. It’s therefore no surprise that conservation efforts so often neglect our underwater serpent friends. It turns out though that seasnakes are far more impressive than we thought and are basically Jedi of the ocean. Seasnakes have a sensory organ on their head which allows them to “feel” vibrations in the water. Research by Jenna Crowe-Riddell, Amy Watson, Anton Suh and Dr Kate Sanders led to this amazing discovery and you can read more about it in the final issue of eScience.
