Safari Ltd. Marble Ray Review:I love this Marble Ray figure, a stunning and lifelike addition to any ocean-themed collection! This large figure is expertly crafted to capture the true essence of a real Marble Ray, with its dark hide mottled with light grey splotches that make it look as though it's swimming right before your eyes. The gills and mouth on the bottom side of the ray are also well defined, adding to the realism of the figure.
Marble Ray Information:A Marble Ray is a species of stingray that belongs to the family Dasyatidae, commonly known as whiptail stingrays. Its scientific name is Taeniura meyeni, and it is also known as the painted ray, marbled ribbontail ray, or leopard ray.
Marble rays are characterized by their distinctive coloration, which includes a mottled pattern of dark spots and blotches on a light background. They have a flattened, diamond-shaped body with a long, whip-like tail that has a spine at the base.
These rays are found in the shallow coastal waters of the Indo-Pacific region, including the Red Sea, East Africa, South Africa, Japan, and Australia. They prefer sandy or muddy areas, and can often be seen buried in the substrate during the day.
Marble rays are carnivorous, feeding on a variety of invertebrates such as crabs, shrimp, and small fish. They are oviparous, meaning that they lay eggs rather than giving birth to live young. The eggs are enclosed in a tough, leathery capsule that is often referred to as a mermaid's purse.
