"You may need to enlarge this..." Chula Vista Nature Center Tip by brdwtchr
Chula Vista Nature Center, Chula Vista: 3 reviews and 3 photos
You may need to enlarge this picture to see it properly. The little blonde girl is petting a sting ray. In the water nearby is a leopard shark bigger than the girl and a horned shark about a meter in length. Petting sharks and rays is the purpose of this pool. I think the point is to help people lose fear of these creatures. The animals are safe to touch. The species of shark in the pool are not a kind that bite. They have teeth that are flattened out for a different purpose. The sting has been removed from the tail of the stingray. The stingray seemed to be the friendlist. When it was close to a person it would practically rise out of the water for a scratch on the back. It was interesting to feel the different textures of skin on these creatures.
