A long tail

This beautiful leopard-spotted stingray belongs to the whipray family. This is due to its long, thin and flexible tail, which is more than twice as long as its body. At the base of the tail, it has a long spine.

Poisonous spines

Many people are afraid of stingrays because the long tail is equipped with a dagger-like poisonous spine. And it does hurt to be stung by a stingray.

A bottom feeder

When the stingray hunts for food, it digs up the seabed in search of mussels, crustaceans, fish and worms. It finds its prey using its sense of smell, or it uses electrosensitivity to sense the heartbeat of its prey.
