Feeding ray at Long Beach

Sea life: Hungry giant short tailed sting ray


Some days at Long Beach you can’t swim ten metres without coming across one of these enormous rays, resting placidly on the sand. I’ve previously posted photos and video of them here and here. This one is snuffling in the sand, looking for shellfish for lunch. A spectacular sight! (Until the visibility declines to approximately zero owing to the clouds of sand being stirred up, that is…)
