Stingray background Body features

The stingray is a common animal but has
weird body parts.Like the wings, the wings are
used to move sand around to find fish scraps
or squid legs.Their mouth is under there body
to suck up anything below them.They don’t
have teeth so they crush everything.The
stinger or barb is going down from ½ way
down their spine to ½ way down there tail.

Habitat/Diet

Stingrays live in reefs and
sandbanks.They eat squid and clams most of
the time.The squid are invertebrates so the
stingray can crush it.Also with clams they
only have a shell which is weak enough to be
crushed buy the stingray.

History of stingray city

How this old place became of in 1987 was

that the fisherman back then would

throughout their fishing scraps which was

squid and fish so it would attract the

stingrays and some other fish.Soon the

fisherman would get in the water and interact

with the stingrays.The more food that the

fisherman gave and the more time that they

spent with them the stingrays got more

comfortable with humans.Then it became a

tourist attraction and for some people it Stingrays, Grand Cayman. By Nadya
became a business over time. Kulagina.
