Sea snake hatchlings are encountered near the end of the Royal Trouble quest, in the Miscellania and Etceteria Dungeon just before facing the Giant Sea Snake. The snakes are poisonous. Players fighting them should bring poison protection of some sort, such as Antipoison, Antipoison+, or Antipoison++.
Players can use the blue eggs, halfway through the tunnel, as a safe spot. It is hard to get them to the player due to be a little further away than the Sea Snake Young.
They can be assigned as a task after the quest by Vannaka.
The following drop rates are provided by Jagex, unless otherwise specified.
