Nice close photo of a spotted eagle ray
The spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari) is a cartilaginous fish of the eagle ray family, Myliobatidae.
The Spotted Eagle Ray is considered to be the second largest of the eagle rays. These majestic creatures are active swimmers and do not lie motionless on the seafloor, like the closely related whiptail stingrays.
The pattern of a spotted eagle ray is unique to each individual, much like a fingerprint. Electrosensory pores in the large rostrum, or "nose," aid in the detection of prey hidden beneath the seafloor.
