Sea snake skin sample taken with green dental rubber material. Guido Westhoff will be doing a positive print out of the skin using a polymer. This polymer will be analyzed in an.electron microscope looking at the skin's ultrastructure - to find out if sea snakes have specific ultrastructures to.enhance swimming efficiency (similar to shark skin).
