The Eagle Ray


What is "Eagle Ray"? The eagle ray is a group of cartilaginous fishes in the family Myliobatidae, consisting mostly of large species living in the open ocean rather than on the sea bottom. They are excellent swimmers and are able to breach the water up to several metres above the surface.

Compared with other rays, they have long tails, and well-defined rhomboidal bodies. They are ovoviviparous, giving birth to up to six young at a time. They range from 48 centimetres (19 in) to 9.1 metres (30 ft) in length.

And it have an unique story in Florida, during the tourist boat trip, the eagle ray jumped in to the boat and hit the tourist. Fortunately they have no serious injuries. And the Florida Fish and Wildlife officials return the eagle ray back to the water.
