Did You Know?
Captain John Smith was stung by a ray at Stingray Point during his journey on the summer of 1608. He was stabbing them with a short sword to catch them and it was likely a cownose ray that jabbed him back. Smith suffered extreme pain, but the ray suffered worse – it ended up as his evening meal.
