Creature Features: Stingrays

Now I've always thought stingrays were cool creatures . . . and now I know it after I got to snorkel with them in Florida a couple weeks ago! That's right, thanks to Aquatica, lilsugar and I got the great opportunity to travel to Florida with other journalists and check out some of the theme parks in the Orlando area. It was super fun for us to see these family-friendly travel destinations . . . and all the awesome animals! On day one, we checked out Discovery Cove where we got to wade and snorkel in the "mock" coral reef and ray lagoon. While in the tropical lagoon swim areas, guests can touch and swim alongside the rays and other saltwater fishes. Lucky for us, they didn't have their stingers so we could safely get a close look at these flat, triangular beauties. Think you know all about stingrays? Check yourself with this quiz!

I loooove stingrays--they're absolutely beautiful! I love the way they look as they "fly" through the water.
