Stingrays have wide, flat bodies, and are considered fish. They are related to sharks, and like their shark cousins, they do not have bones. Instead, their bodies are supported by cartilage—the same material that you feel inside the tip of your nose. Broad fins run the entire length of their body, which gives them their flat, roundish shape. To swim, some stingrays move their whole bodies in a wavy motion that propels them through the water. Other species flap their fins like bird wings and “fly” through the water.

Stingrays have tails that are armed for defense. Some have a spine in their tail that has a sharp point and serrated edges. Many species, including the exotic-looking blue-spotted stingray, have venom that is delivered through their tails. That venom, and the spine itself, can be dangerous to humans. Stingrays prefer shallow, near-shore waters in warm parts of the world. Here, they spend most of their time lying partially buried on the ocean floor hiding from predators, like sharks, or waiting for prey to swim by. Their colors usually match the mud or sand they hide in. While a stingray’s mouth is on the underside of its body, along with its nostrils and gill slits, its eyes are on the top. Scientists don’t think they use their eyes for hunting very much though. Instead, they use special sensors called ampullae of Lorenzini, which can detect the tiny electrical charges emitted by their prey. (Info from National Geographic).

Prey for stingrays includes clams, oysters, shrimps, crabs, and mussels. Stingrays will crush their food using strong jaws. Female stingrays typically give births one time per year.They can have two to six young at a time. Baby stingrays are born quite large, so they look like small adults when they are born, and they are able to fend for themselves.
