A yellow-lipped sea krait (Laticauda colubrina) swims over a reef in the tropical western Pacific Ocean. Coral reefs and associated waters are also characteristically inhabited by sea kraits as well as true (hydrophiine) sea snakes throughout much of the tropical Indo-Pacific, but they are absent from the Atlantic Ocean. In an Overview article in this issue, Harvey B. Lillywhite and his colleagues discuss this absence and the factors that led to the species' current ranges.
