The Spotted Eagle Ray is one of the most terrifying and misunderstood creatures in the ocean.
Their long tails are equipped with venomous barbs, or stingers, that can inflict a savage wound and deliver a powerful toxin.
Their fearsome appearance and undeserved reputation as killers of the deep have led people to believe that they are aggressive and dangerous to people.
The truth is that they are reclusive and shy, fleeing from people in most cases.
They are among the most gentle creatures in the ocean.
