Stingrays Facts

Facts on Stingrays - The stingray species is easily recognized by their flat-shaped bodies.

Most stingray species are found living near the sea floor in tropical and subtropical oceans because they exist best in warm shallow water.

The stingray skeleton is made of cartilage. In fact stingrays are related to the shark species and sharks also have a similar cartilaginous skeleton. A stingray’s tail is sometimes serrated with a venomous spine in some species.

The eyes of stingray species are located on top of their head but they use electro-sensors to detect their prey. Stingrays mostly feed on shrimps, mussels, and clams. They crush the food using powerful jaws on the underside of their body.
