Eagle ray video


"The 'tail' of the eagle ray - or not in this case! A few days ago in one of my favourite spots that we named Broken Rock, we were super lucky to find a beautiful and amazing eagle ray that was very curious as you can see in the video.

Eagle rays are 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 feed on molluscs and crustaceans, crushing their shells with their flattened teeth. Devil and manta rays filter plankton from the water.

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.

Did you notice that it's missing it's tail? Come and dive with us in Broken Rock and let's see if you can get as lucky too!"
