Fearless stingray

This large spotted eagle ray swims through the waters surrounding the Galapagos Islands as if it has nothing to fear. A full grown stingray can inflict a life threatening wound with it's large, sharp barbs. The 6 barbs are equipped with a powerful toxin that will cause tremendous pain. This would be enough to deter all but the most determined predators. Eagle rays are preyed upon by several species of shark yet, this large ray cruises unconcerned among them and even around scuba divers. The divers were in complete awe of this magnificent creature.
