The Sea Pancake – The Stingray
Affectionately called the “Sea Pancake,” the stingray is a flat-bodied ray with a long tail. Though their tail can be intimidating, stingrays are generally not dangerous. In fact, they have a long reputation for being gentle!
“Sharp” Facts About the Stingray:
- Stingrays are closely related to sharks. Like the shark, they do not have bones, and their skeletons are made up of cartilage instead.
- Stingrays have flat bodies that allow them to dig into the sand and hide from dangerous predators.
- Stingrays do not use their eyes to hunt for prey. Instead, they use their sense of smell or detection of electric fields or currents in the water to hunt.
- Stingrays eat a diet of crustaceans such as clams, crabs, shrimp, oysters, and more.
- Stingrays can have between two and six babies a year.
- Stingrays live long lives. Typically in the wild, a stingray lives between 15 and 25 years.
Snorkel with Stingray Friends Right in Your Hometown
It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside, getting into tropical waters to snorkel with stingrays, sharks, and tropical fish is an amazing experience that you will always remember. These waters are approximately 70 to 76 degrees, and we provide the wetsuit and snorkeling gear. All you need to bring is a swimsuit, a towel, and a shirt just in case a wetsuit in your size isn’t available.
So get ready to get wet, and if you are lucky, you might even get some stingray kisses or get your toes explored by the guitarfish.
