Surfing Red Bellied Black Snake

DSC_7018This Red Bellied Black snake was seen on Tura Beach  heading into the ocean,when washed ashore in the surf it turned around & went back to the ocean. It appeared very docile when washed up  but as the waves touched it again it headed back again towards the water.  Any explanations on this behaviour would be welcomed.Thankyou to Norm Hamilton for the closeup photos in gallery.

    Possible explanation for snake in water .if its eyes were pale blue or milky it was having a difficult shed and needed to soften its old skin.
