The great stingray migration!

Thousands of majestic stingrays swim to new seas.
Taken by an amateur photographer in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, these photos show the great migration of the Cow-nose Stingrays from the Yucatan Peninsula to western Florida. They travel in compact packs of up to 10,000 individuals following the counter-clockwise current to their summer feeding grounds.
Measuring up to 6ft 6in across, poisonous golden cow-nose rays migrate in groups – or ‘fevers’ – of up to 10,000 as they glide their way silently towards their summer feeding grounds.These bovine-looking stingrays have a poisonous stinger similar to the one that killed animal-lover Steve Irwin but this doesn’t make them less pleasant to look at, especially during their migration.

    They look like a bunch of sticky pad notes floating about.

    Steve Irwin’s hell? I don’t think so. Looks like a quilted sea… I think Steve Irwin would definitely approve…

    Funny this post is here…my kids, ages 9, 6, and 4, went to the Milwaukee Co. Zoo in Milwaukee, Wi yesterday and petted and fed a stingray.
    It’s all they’ve talked about for the past 12 hours! 🙂
