Southern Stingray (Hypanus americanus)

Scaled collection of drawings of Southern Stingray in top and side poses

The southern stingray (Hypanus americanus) may be a relative of sharks and skates because it is ovoviviparous and prefers to be in solitary or in small groups. The fish is docile and can be tamed and hand-fed, though its audaciousness makes it avoided in the aquarium business. The southern stingray possesses an indistinct head, a slim tail longer than its body length and may be bent and serrated with a venomous spine for self-defense. It fits in the family Dasyatidae with eyes and spiracles on their heads and a flat diamond-shaped disc. The fish is common to the western Atlantic Ocean, mainly in equatorial and subtropical waters.

Southern Stingrays have a total width between 24”-60” (61-152 cm) and overall disc length of 20.5”-52.2” (52-130 cm). The typical weight of the Southern Stingray is in the range of 160-215 lb (73-98 kg). Southern Stingrays have lifespans between 12-17 years.

Batoidea, or rays, are the largest group of fish whose bodies are made out of cartilage instead of bones, similar to their relatives the shark. Rays are easily identifiable by their flat bodies with elongated fins attached to their heads, and gills placed on their underbellies.
