  A stingray
by sswagner

A long time ago, some fishermen threw the remains of their catch into the sea where stingrays often were found. The stingrays became accustomed to being fed and being around people. Once they became tame, this place became an attraction. Now, many tours are available to bring you out to where the stingrays are so that you can have a close encounter with them. They did not seem that dangerous to me. The tour boats will have some squid that you can feed them. It is even possible to lift one out of the water if you are careful. Even though the water is shallow where the stingrays are, it is good to have a mask so you can see them underwater.
