Spotted Eagle Ray Information:
A spotted eagle ray is a species of eagle ray, a type of cartilaginous fish that belongs to the family Myliobatidae. It is named for its distinctive spotted pattern on its dorsal side, which is usually dark blue or black with white spots, and its long, flat snout that resembles an eagle's beak.
Spotted eagle rays have a wide distribution throughout the world's tropical and subtropical waters, and they typically inhabit shallow coastal waters and coral reefs. They are known for their graceful swimming and can often be seen "flying" through the water with their wings-like fins.
These rays are usually solitary or found in small groups, and they feed on a variety of prey including small fish, crustaceans, and mollusks. They can grow up to 16 feet in wingspan and are considered to be harmless to humans. However, they may use their venomous barbs on their tails as a defense mechanism if they feel threatened.
