I remember a few years ago down on the gulf side of Florida a report of a nurse shark attack on a tourist in the water. They had a sheriff on the news that said "Stupid bas**** grabbed it by the tail and was trying to haul it up on the beach for his kids to see." The rest of the story is always interesting.
I've done shark-ray alley about 4 times, once when the sharks and rays were so thick you couldn't move, and never had a problem.

Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Every American citizen needs to read this!

Personal Experience talking here.... I've had rays draped over my head..hand fed them and NEVER
EVER had ANY issues...Unless you REALLY TRY TO **** THEM OFF...

sorry about the add on there...was in my paste que...just left it for all to read...

I don't know that I'd call what happened to Steve Irwin an "attack". He did something very stupid and paid a high price for it. Anyone who behaves remotely sensibly towards wild animals in the sea will have no problems.

Pedro is right in one respect...Steve made a mistake..only that..he did'nt see the Ray, was too focused on chaseing the Turtle. Rays are PEACEFUL, GRACEFUL animals..they learn to accept humans into THEIR home. Only react when scared...otherwise they are like big puppy's.

Steve was my hero because he truly wanted all people to know and understand wild life. AND RESPECT THEM.

Go have fun at Hol'll have a blast and NEVER forget the fun you have!

AC is a wonderland if you like the water and love people...enjoy it!

I have, in my posession, a copy of the mutual manifesto of death signed by a two-thirds majority of rays (sting and non-sting). The document defines, in no uncertain terms, the ray family's hatred and murderous intent toward most human types, including backward-swimming and kamakazi flights over boat sterns with the intent to injure and/or kill at any cost.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
