“Ziggy Of The Sea” Episode 5 – Grace Of The Stingray

The stingrays are magical animals that glides on the bottom of the sea. They are related to the shark family and use their electrical sensors to find crustaceans in the sand. The eyes of the stingray located on the upper part of his body while the mouth, nostrils and gills are on the bottom, so it can never see the meal. Stingrays have a false bad reputation but they will never attack a person without being seriously provoked. I can tell you from experience as you can see how close I am to the animal filming.

When caught, fisherman sometimes chop off the tail to get rid of the sting and release it, chopping the tail off is detrimental for the animal since it will not grow it back so the stingray is left with no protection.

filmed in the Red Sea (Blue Spotted) and the Caribbean (Southern).
