The black-banded sea krait, also known as "irabu" by the locals, tastes like a mix of tuna and smoked jerky. Found in the warm cave waters of Kudaka Island, just off Okinawa, this dangerous Japanese delicacy is 10 times more venomous than a cobra, and one bite could mean death within minutes. As the island’s sacred animal, it’s believed that eating irabu is the secret to long life, and was once reserved only for royalty. Follow as Guy enters dark carves with nearly no protective gear and two snake hunters that are far from what you’d expect.
