OXNARD, Calif. (KABC) -- An Oxnard resident made a startling discovery as she walked along Silver Strand Beach Thursday afternoon.

She found a venomous snake along the shore. It ended up washing back into the water, but not before she snapped a photo of it.

Another person reported seeing the snake along the shore Friday morning.

It's believed to be a yellow-bellied sea snake, and officials were investigating.
