Mr R of Sunshine ☀️ This ray was as intrigued by my GoPro as I was with it - watch it take a sharp turn to swim right by me and take a good look! You can see it’s broad spiracles behind the large, yellow, protruding eyes. Beautiful. The bluespotted ribbontail ray is marked with a striking pattern of electric blue spots on a grey/yellowish skin with a pair of blue stripes running along the thick tail as far as the spines. When they move, most stingrays swim by undulating their bodies like a wave; others flap their sides like wings. Females give birth to litters of up to seven young - the embryos stay in their eggs inside the mother's body until they are ready to hatch. This ray can give a nasty sting from one of the venomous barbs on its tail, though it prefers to flee if threatened. This one, was pretty relaxed. 😊 Rays and skates are flattened fish closely related to sharks belonging to a group of fish called Elasmobranchs. Sadly, numbers of bluespotted ribbontail ray are in decline. Overfishing, habitat loss and climate change are major threats but they’re also hunted for their gill rakers (which they use to feed) which are used in Chinese medicine. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has listed this species as Near Threatened. Fossil records date stingrays back to the Jurassic period, 150 million years ago.

For a while I worked as a Water Quality Supervisor at Schlitterbahn. I was known as the animal guy there because of my biology background and because I would catch hand relocate animals. We had a radio code, “Code Squiggly”, and when you heard that, it meant there was a snake in the water. All the snakes were juvenile water banded snakes. I was the only one not afraid to catch them with my hand. I tried multiple times to inform people that these little guys were completely harmless. One time, one of them bit my finger and everyone around me freaked out! I told them I could barely feel it and that I was going to be just fine. There were other animals to relocate, like baby sliders and a ground squirrel once. Bird watching was also really great in the mornings when no one was around ♥️ ist
