WARNING - THIS RAY CAN KILL YOU

Post by VifferRider »

A Marble Ray has been caught off the southcoast, near Shorham.

This fish is normally found in warmer waters in the med, but if there is one, there could be more :o

The fish delivers a massive electric shock which is sufficient to kill a man outright.

Please take a look at this picture, store it in the ole memory banks just in case

This is not a windup

How should one be handled if caught :-S if at all
Would it just be best to cut the snood in this case and let it on it way

That picture is of a Motoro stingray - Potamotrygon motoro they live in Amazonion fresh waters. I used to keep 2 in a large aquarium. The pictures on the links are of the Marbled Ray.

Cheers
