Photo: Splashing with the Stingrays Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies

Stingrays aren't my favorites, but they are interesting creatures, I will say that.
They have groups that gather to "splash with" the stingrays. These girls are braver than I am. I'd probably get spooked and tried to avenge Steve Irwin in my panic.

  1. We have a place here in Vegas where you can put your hands in the aquarium and pet the really small stingrays. They are interesting animals.

    1. How true - but we only hear about this incident due to his fame and sometimes one would say insanity regarding wild animals.

      They are deadly and when spotted by surf life savers here on beaches, you never see such a mad rush out of the surf...I reckon faster than a shark warning!

  4. Stingrays freak me out but my kids love touching them every time we go to Ripley's!

  5. My girls like to put them at the aquarium, but any water creature gives me the willies when it comes to touching, so I'll just admire from afar.
