    And getting stabbed with a normal sized Stingray's barb is bad enough. I'd hate to see what these things would do to you...

    No, they found it without the barb. But I don't understand the 440lbs variance in weight?

    I didn't read the article.

    Also, I didn't know stingrays lived in fresh water too

    that's crazy, but when you think about it. we've only explored 10% of our oceans. who knows what else is out there.
    this is what i want to do when i grow up :)

    That's awesome. I've seen a manta ray that size before. I thought it was a massive truck tire at first.

    I have a couple Tetra fish in my fishtank that are pretty transparent...you can see pretty much everything inside them. (not my actual fish in photos below...but mine are similar)

    I also have a "Bleeding Heart" Tetra that is kinda transparent - you can see its "heart" through its body (although I'm pretty sure that's not its real heart :)).

    If I went swimming and I saw that thing beneath the waves, I would freak out. That would be the last time I would ever step in the sea/ocean

    I wonder they get this big because of the toxic waste in waters??? It is friday so I am allowed to be dumb.
