Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Minimum depth from Ref. 101690. Widely spread in tropical reefs. Spends half of its lifetime on land but goes back to water to hunt for food. It then returns to small islets to digest its prey, mate and lay its eggs. Soft-bottom forager, targeting anguilliform fishes in cavities and burrows. Occupies the same trophic level as Laticauda saintgironsi (Ref. 101687). Migrates on land to reproduce (Ref. 2352).
