Take a few steps outside Atlantis, Paradise Island's Beach Tower and you'll find yourself at the sandy, shallow, Stingray Lagoon. An exquisite marine habitat that affords resort guests an up-close look at rays. It's chance for close up marine life interaction that's not to be missed.
Southern stingrays (Dasyatis Americana) and Cownose rays (Rhinoptera bonasus). Stingrays are relatively docile creatures and not all are venomous. The Cownose rays however, do have venomous barbs on the top of their tail and are used only as a defense mechanism.
Southern stingrays are masters at burying themselves. They use their long, winglike fins to flip sand over their bodies and end up with only their spiracles exposed for respiration. This sandy hideaway helps them remain concealed from their primary predator, the hammerhead shark.
