StingrayLagoon Facts

MARINE LIFE IN RESIDENCE

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.

StingrayLagoon Sandy

Sandy Shelters

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.
