Stingray at Adventure Aquarium
There are about 220 known stingray species organized into 10 families and 29 genera.Stingrays are common in coastal tropical and subtropical marine waters throughout the world.The flattened bodies of stingrays allow them to effectively conceal themselves in their environments. Stingrays do this by agitating the sand and hiding beneath it. Because their eyes are on top of their bodies and their mouths on the undersides, stingrays cannot see their prey; instead, they use smell and electroreceptors similar to those of sharks.
