Possible snake but does not fit the description of those species found in the Seychelles. Surface of skin appears reptilian as opposed to smooth like an eel.
Dark dorsal surface with yellow underside. Approx 1m in length.

That's an interesting find

The sea-snakes are quite fascinating, though as I'm sure you know they need to be treated with respect. The venom is generally very toxic, but they seldom seem to bite humans - even collectors handling them quite carelessly.
