The Bluespotted Stingray Pillow

Size

The Blue Spotted Stingray (Taeniura lymma), or Kuhl's Stingray, is a member of Dasyatidae family. It can be found in the coastal waters of the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific. It prefers sandy shallows waters where it can easily mask itself. Blue Spotted Rays feed on small fish, crustaceans as crabs and shrimp, molluscs as well as small fish. The species has a characteristic blue spotted olive-green body and two venomous stingers on the anterior section of the tail. While the Blue Spotted Ray's venom is not lethal to humans, it certainly is very painful. It is a popular aquarium species due its beautigul coloration but is not easily kept in captivity.
